Adobe LiveCycle Form Button Visibility: PDF Example Attached

I have attached a form that I need some assistance with.  If you click the "Edit Goals" button and enter a password (for testing purposes 'password') it makes some additional buttons visible.  You can then "Add a Goal" and a new subform is created, or click "Add Support Narrative" and another subform is created.  HOWEVER, the "Remove" button and the "X" button are still invisible on the new instances of the subform.  How do I mark the new instances of the buttons visible when they are created via the "Add Goals" or "Add Support Narrative" buttons?

Also, after the appropriate number of goals are added the end user is supposed to click "Lock Goals" and all buttons should become invisible again.  However, with my current coding I believe only the original instance of the subform buttons will become invisible.  I assume there is a wildcard I can include that will make all subform instances of a particular name marked to invisible. . . Help please?

Alright so I have been working on this form and I think I have made some progress.  I finally figured out how to call a text field or button created at run time.  So things are going in the right direction.  I am sure there is a more efficient way to hide and unhide form fields and to make things open or read only.  If anyone has suggestions I am game for more efficiency.  The script will be getting pretty long by the time I am through.  Otherwise here is the updated form.  Not finished yet but may answer someone's question.
