I'm trying to name a class representing objects that can be hidden and reshown. I'm wondering if there's a better term than "hideable object".

I have recently had this very same dilemma. In the end I went with 'hidable'. It is extremely clear what is meant, and so is better than using a word like removable or the ugly toHide. It doesn't appear in every dictionary but according to Merriam Webster it is a word; though without the 'e'. That's good enough for me.
