Image Toggle Button States - Re-label/Re-order


#1

I have a number of image toggle buttons, and the order/labels of the states within the properties window can be confusing. I think the states should be relabeled in some way:
Released Unchecked = Normal
Pressed Unchecked = Pressed
Released Checked = Checked
Pressed Checked = Released

  • I agree
  • I disagree

Hi @wtintuiface,

I understand your confusion, naming these properties had been long debate here :slight_smile:
Regarding your proposition, what is the difference between “Normal” and “Released” ?

Actually, I think that using your naming proposition, the 4 states would be

  • Released Unchecked = Normal
  • Pressed Unchecked = Pressed
  • Released Checked = Checked
  • Pressed Checked = Checked & Pressed

Your thoughts?

Hi Seb,
Normal would represent the button as it would appear with no interaction, whereas released would entail selecting the button to uncheck it. Calling it ‘checked and pressed’ does work as a title.

In my opinion ‘released’ is more concise: pressed would be the state when you are pushing on the button with force, and released would be when you let go of that force and it transitions to unchecked.
