What's the key to ensure "show" displays text box on top with multiple buttons/boxes?

I've created a page with 4 buttons. On click each button, a text box displays. The text box is under the buttons, so that no matter which button you click, the associated text for that button displays in the same screen location.



I am having trouble ensuring that the correct text box displays on click. For example, right now when I click button 1, text box 1 displays, but when i click button 2, text box 2 shows underneath text box 1 so users can't see it.



Is it necessary to add an action to hide text boxes 2, 3 and 4 on show text box 1, and so on for each show action? That seems like a lot of work. However, when I select the property "always on top" for the text boxes, i don't get the desired result, and I can't think of a workaround.



Any suggestions or tips?



Thanks!

    The easiest way to do that is to put all text boxes into a group. Each button then needs two actions 1. Hide group 2. Show appropriate textfield.
