Show one group, hide many?

I can't find anything (probably because I'm not searching the correct terms!) on how to set up an button to show a group and hide all other groups.  Seems like it should be simple, maybe using conditional statements with variables? I would hate to have to set up an action for every single group separately to show or hide.  Can anyone help or direct me to something?  Thanks so much!

    Are you saying there is one button that, when clicked, will show different groups? Or multiple buttons that each show a particular group but hide all others?

    I have instances of the latter quite frequently: Buttons 1-5 show their correlating Groups 1-5. I create a 'Hide All Groups' action group then add two actions to each button: 1. Run Action Group, 2. Show Group #. Since the actions are run sequentially, the button first hides anything currently displayed, then shows the desired group.

    My approach is this.

    1 actiongroup with actions in it hiding all buttons.

    Then whenever you want to show a particular button.


    That way you always hide everything..and then show the button needed.

    PS. Same logic as @clammers just didnot read it properly ;-)
