Source Code

// An example which shows how to create buttons which change appearance when pressed.

// In the upper box pressing an enabled button makes the other (disabled) button become

// enabled, and disabled itself. In the lower box, buttons are a plain blue,

// but change to a graphic (a tem image) when pressed. The image is contained within the script

// and the format thereof is shown. I have created a little utility script to convert an image

// into this format. Contact me if you'd like a copy.
