Hide an Acrobat button except during rollover
In some cases, you may want the button area to be invisible until the pointer moves over it. By alternately showing
and hiding a button, you can create interesting visual effects in a document. For example, when you move a pointer
over a city on a map, a detail map of the city could be displayed, and the detail map could disappear when the pointer
moves away from the city.
