Topic: The creation of a specific type of pdf button

I wish to create the following types of buttons

(1) I want to click on a button and for a box of text to appear below the button. I have used the show/hide field command to show the text when I click the button once. My problem is that I want to the same button let the box of text disappear again when I click it again. Basically, I wish to create 1 button that both shows and hides the box of text after each click.

(2) Kas Thomas has created a type of animation for acrobat. I wish to use his techniques to create a clickable button to view an image one frame at a time within the same pdf file. The viewer clicks a button to advance to each slide image and when they reach the end of the animation by clicking the same button again the button resets the animation to the starting frame

Basically, I require the type of buttons that are used in acrobat to advance to previous or next pages, for the control of each image in my slide show.
If anybody can provide any help I would be very grateful.
