TCPmaker : Visual Tour    TCPmaker Screen Controls  

The rectangular Pushbutton control is a lighted button that is useful for sending an integer value (usually 0 or 1) to the micro device.

From the color pickers below the stage, or from the Property Page for this control type, you can select two colors for this button: a Passive Color, displayed initially and when the button is not being pushed, and an Active Color, displayed when the button is pushed or "down."

The Pushbutton control has 4 operating modes:

  • Momentary - Button remains in the Active state only so long is it is being pushed
  • Toggle - click once to make it toggle to Active state, where it will stay until clicked again.
  • Radio - Button is one of a group of "radio buttons:" only one button in the group will toggle to the Active state at a time. (All other buttons in the group turn off.)
  • Indicator - Clicking on the control does not change its state. Button only acts like a rectangular indicator light.
