Button Property

Post by Surbhit29 » Fri Sep 14, 2012 7:26 am

Hello Everyone,

I am new to LiveCode and while going through stuff I found out that when the button is clicked its color changes to dark blue. And when going through inspector I didn't found anything that can change the color of the button while mouseDown. Is their anyway that we can change the color of the button while it is clicked ?
Thanks in advance.

you can set "the hilitecolor" of your button, either via Script (on mousedown in your case) or
in the "Inspector" -> "Colors & Pattern" (misleadingly labeled "Hilite text").

I may repeat myself, but please check these stacks to get the basics of LiveCode:

I will move this thread to the correct forum, this is not GAMES specific.
