I would use another feature of the formslibrary:
I would bound all the objects to deactivate into a group of objects
(-->Xformsmanual). if you use fl_deactivate_object(.. on the group, it
will deactivate the group.
Deactivating the form deactivates the forms itself, and so on you can't
use a single object.
