Changing button fill when pressed on iPad

I am having troubles with a button that I can't get to change color/fill when pressed on iPad. It works well when I preview the app in browser while using mouse but wont happen on iPad. Any ideas what I could do to make it work?


Thanks in advance.

Use variables to do it


Screen - OnVisible=UpdateContext({Button1:true, Button2:false})


Then on Button 1

 * OnSelect =UpdateContext({Button1:true, Button2:false})

* DisplayMode = If(Button1,Disabled,Edit)


On Button 2

* OnSelect = UpdateContext({Button1:false, Button2:true})

* DisplayMode = If(Button2,Disabled,Edit)


You can set the Disabled Fill and Color for each of the buttons to whatever you want and you can do this with as many  buttons you want, I just did this example for two.

Thanks for your response, I'll try it.

Hi @MayaD,

How do you change the Fill color of the Button within your app?

Have you solved your problem?

I have made a test on my side, please take a try with the following workaround:

Set the OnSelect property of the Button control to following:


Set the Fill property of the Button control to following:

If(IsClicked,RGBA( 255, 20, 147, 1 ),RGBA(56, 96, 178, 1))

Please take a try with above solution, check if your issue is solved.

That is one option but it (in my opinion) works better the way I put above where instead having to put the if statement on your fill you just change the button properties off the variable. 


I have done both and just find this way to be easier and cleaner...but everybody has their own style and way of doing things. I like this option because I prefer being able to click on the colors so I can see what I like better instead of having to type them out in the if statement. But is basically has the same outcome either way.
