< KDE Visual Design Group | HIGRevision as of 21:57, 17 August 2010 by Agateau (talk | contribs)(diff) ← Older revision | Latest revision (diff) | Newer revision → (diff) A toggle button is a button which stays down when clicked once and goes up when clicked a second time. When to use Use a toggle button to indicate a state. Example: A word processor should use toggle buttons to indicate the state of "Bold", "Italic" or "Underline" formatting. When not to use Do not use a toggle button to indicate an action. Example: A music player should not use a toggle button to implement a Play/Pause button. It should use a normal button and adjust the icon and label to represent the action which would be performed when clicked. How to use Never change the icon or label of a toggle button. The fact that it is pressed down is enough to indicate the current state of the element it represents. Since a toggle button represents a state, in most cases the label should be a noun rather than a verb.
