How to permanently restore visibility of a button, once it has been hidden

Once I hide a button via the "Settings" control for that button, how do I permanently restore the button's visibility? I can temporarily restore visibility to the button with the "Show/Hide Object" tool, but the visibility goes away once I click on something else.

right click on other object --->settings

then press tab key until button is showing in name of setting window, then show object


or type SetVisibleInView( button1, 1,true) for button1

or ( I think there is a bug here ) select the last tool bar icon---->show/hide object then clic in input word in algebra view

Thank you, mathmagic.

The first and 3rd methods worked to allow me to make a button visible again. The 3rd scenario once executed, additionally required the "then press tab key...." sequence of the 1st method to get the object visible again.

Am not sure of how to implement the 2nd method suggested, if you are in the situation where you have to find the button first. Would the "SetVisibleInView..." command go in the Script of the button?

Regardless, I am thankful for your help in guiding me to at least one(1) method of restoring the button's visibility.

Hi mathmagic et al.,

It just dawned on me to type in the "SetVisibleInView...." command into the Input area. This is the suggested 2nd method of making a hidden object visible. That worked, as well.

So all three(3) of your suggestions did the trick for me, of making a hidden button visible again.
