I hope I understood your question correctly, are you asking if we can show or hide a Processbook layer with a button using VBA?
If so, here is a code snippet that toggles the visibility of "Layer1" in a ProcessBook display using a button:
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() Dim status As Boolean status = ThisDisplay.Layers("Layer1").Visible If (status = True) Then ThisDisplay.Layers("Layer1").Visible = False Else ThisDisplay.Layers("Layer1").Visible = True End If End Sub
Hope it helps! Let me know if you have any questions.
Im looking something like this, but for all texts!! do you know how can do that ?

Are you using layers? If not, what kind of symbols would you like to hide? On each ProcessBook displays, there are usually different types of "symbols". E.g.
- Text: similar to textbox where you can type in text
- Value: display the value of a PI tag, AF attribute, etc.
- Trend: time-series plot
- Bar: bar graph
The different types of symbols are stored in the pbSYMBOLTYPE enumeration. I am going to give you an example that hides all the Text symbols on the processbook display. Feel free to modify the example to hide all the symbols you consider as "texts".
' Note: CommandButton1 by default has the caption "Hide Text" Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() ' store all symbols in the processbookd display Dim syms As Symbols ' isHide is true if we want to hide the symbols, else false Dim isHide As Boolean ' Toggle dislay caption of the button If CommandButton1.Caption = "Hide Text" Then isHide = True CommandButton1.Caption = "Show Text" Else isHide = False CommandButton1.Caption = "Hide Text" End If Set syms = ThisDisplay.Symbols ' loop through all symbols to hide (or show) the text symbols For i = 1 To syms.Count If (syms(i).Type = pbSYMBOLTYPE.pbSymbolText) Then If (isHide) Then syms(i).Visible = False Else syms(i).Visible = True End If End If Next i End Sub
Thank You !
