I have select query in a button but I don't want user to see the way I am changing the map coordinate while selecting specific points and adding a layer. How is it possible to do that in a button ? Is using select query the correct way or are there other ways?

You can add NOSELECT to the end of the query.

Example from the user guide:

Select * From World Into EarthQuery NoSelect
