A button initiates an action when the user clicks it.

+
= Guidelines =
+
* Use [[Projects/Usability/HIG/Capitalization|title style capitalization]] for the label.
+
* Buttons are not dynamic: their icon and label should not change depending on the context. [[Projects/Usability/HIG/Toggle_Buttons|Toggle buttons]] are a special case where a button has a state.
+
* Do not initiate an action on right-click or double-click.
+
* Prefer using icons on buttons only for OK, Apply or Cancel like actions. Passive actions like those in the "System Settings => Application Appearance => Fonts" do not have icons.
