    Toggle button for visibility.

      Hi, I've seen some info on this on these forums and from Google searches but I'm still a bit confused.  I want to make one button that toggles the visibility for print of one column of fields.  I can do two buttons for this but the a toggle would be much nicer.

          Suppose there are three fields in the column, "text1", "text2", and "text3". A simple script to toggle their visibility that you can use in the Mouse Up event of the button is:


          // MouseUp script for button
          (function () {
              // Get a reference to the first field in the column
              var f1 = getField("text1");
              // Toggle the display visibility value
              dv = (f1.display === display.visible) ? display.hidden : display.visible;
              // Set the display property of the fields to the new value
              f1.display = dv;
              getField("text2").display = dv;
              getField("text3").display = dv;


          This could be simplified a bit, but you should get the idea.

            Thanks!  I think I was mainly confused on the syntax.
