Button effects

This seems easy but I can't figure it out.   I have a button with red Fill that needs to change to black Fill when pressed, then back to red when pressed again.   It needs to toggle back and forth regardless of how many times it is pressed.   Any suggestions?   Thanks in advance.

You'll have to do it change variable buttonPressed on each button 

 

buttonPressed1

buttonPressed2

In your OnSelect property of button add

 

UpdateContext({pressedButton:!true})

 

Change Fill property to

 

If(pressedButton=true, Color.Black, Color.Red)

Hi @Sienna

 

Yes, that's a good answer. But is this what you meant to say?

Hi @timl

Yes.. Thanks for correction... I wanted to do it old way at first and then I've changed my mind 🙂

No problem @Sienna! It was pretty obvious what you were getting at, but I thought I'd mention it just in case.

That is ok... Please always do if you spot some misstake. I usually do this on the go or while I'm waiting for PA to start responding again 😞

Thanks very much.   This works but I have several different buttons on the same page.   I used these formulas for each but when I press one button it changes all of them black.   I know I need to specify the name of the particular button somewhere in there but I don't know where.

@Sienna  Thank you!   This worked perfectly!

I was able to get buttons to change the Fill but when clicked a second time the button reverts back to its original state, like a toggle.

So when one button gets clicked I am filtering a gallery based on a Status field, and that button should stay highlighted while on that view, but if the same button gets clicked again it goes back to a white (orginal) Fill.

 

Is there a way to make it not toggle?
