This Button allows to make a component conditionally not visible/pickable for example in order to make components lying behind accessible. The difference to the "transparent/opaque" button is, that after clicking on this button the component is neither visible nor pickable whereas it is still pickable if only the view is switched from opaque to transparent. In order to use this button for a component, it is important to check mark the Option "conditionally not visible/pickable" in the Properties of it.
