No problem.

You would have to add an IBOutlet AND an IBAction for all affected buttons.

assuming you have 3 buttons, Button One, Button Two and a button to reset everything, so to show all buttons again.

This is how your code would look like:

    @IBOutlet weak var buttonOne: UIButton!
    @IBOutlet weak var buttonTwo: UIButton!

    @IBAction func buttonOnePressed() {

        // When buttonOne is pressed, it hides buttonTwo.

        buttonTwo.hidden = true

    @IBAction func buttonTwoPressed() {

        // When buttonTwo is pressed, it hides buttonOne.

        buttonOne.hidden = true

    @IBAction func unhideButtons() {

        // when unhideButtons is pressed, it unhides all buttons

        buttonOne.hidden = false
        buttonTwo.hidden = false

I hope this leads you in the right direction ;-)

Hehehe yeah haha thanks!
