Interactive buttons not working when Publishing Online

Hello, I am trying to make an interactive document that shows and hides images when pushing buttons. I have a button for showing the object, and one for hiding the same object. I notice that these buttons do not work when publishing online. Is there something I am missing here? 

 

I also see that animations do work when publishing online, but there is no option to hide an animation after it has been triggered, so this route doesn't work for my needs of hiding images after they've already been triggered. 

 

Any advice would be greatly appreciated! 
Thank you

Hi all,

I actually figured this out! It turned out that the pre-made buttons you can insert into an InDesign page don't work (at least for me) when published to online. I had to turn objects into buttons, and those worked very well. 

 

In terms of animations, they work beautifully too online, but it has to again be with your own buttons, not the pre-made. I couldn't fade in an object with one button and fade it out with another, I could only fade it in with one button, and turn it off (meaning it suddenly dissapears) with another. Too bad, it would have been nice to able to fade something in and then back out.
