    Default Auto hide button

    I have button that hide after press which is simple when you know the button name.
    How do I add a line to get the name of the button pressed so I can use the variable holding the button name for later manipulation

    Put this as an action when the button is pushed.

    'Set the value of one or more variables.
    DIM GLOBAL pushed AS N
    pushed = a5_eval_expression("=1")

    Then you can use that variable to hide the button using Conditional Object.

    However, the name of the button is in the Button Properties, as in "CONTROL_BUTTON1" if you want to show/hide it that way.

    I like using a conditional object based on a logical variable to hide or show a button on a form, but I suppose a numerical value is just as good (0=hide,1=show); and the variable needn't be global unless you want to pass that value to another form or dialog.
