    started a topic Fancy Button (winbutton) enhancment request.

    Fancy Button (winbutton) enhancment request.

    It would be very useful if the fancy button (WinButton) objects had an option to use different colors for the on and off (up/down) states.

    Yes, I realize that you can use the user button object to do the color change, but the user button object has no caption and due to the lack of a Z-Order any static text placed on top of it does not stay visible. And making the text part of the images for the user button precludes dynamically using different languages, etc. unless you are willing to do far too many duplicate stacked button objects.

    Hello,

    I would like to mention the way of achieving this using the 'Userbutton' 'widget. But as you have said, you need to include the caption/text to your image.

    You can see a small widget appear at the top of the WinButton.
    Specifying the color and text of the 'on' and 'off' state of the button, a little animation can be produced while toggling.
    Kevin,
    Thank you for the response. I am aware of the status widget, but my application is for in-vehicle use and the widget just isn't obvious enough for a safe, "quick glance" status check for a driver.
