==When to use==

{{Note|This page is now on [[https://hig.kde.org/components/editing/togglebutton.html https://hig.kde.org/]]}}
 
+
Use a toggle button to indicate a ''state'' rather than an ''action''. For example a word-processor would use toggle buttons to indicate the state of "Bold", "Italic" or "Underline" formatting.

==Do and don't==
+
 
+
Do not change the icon or label of a toggle button. The fact that it is pressed down is enough.
+
 
+
Since a toggle button represents a state, in most cases the label should be a noun rather than a verb.
