==When to use==
 
 
 
Use a toggle button to indicate a ''state'' rather than an ''action''. For example a word-processor would use toggle buttons to indicate the state of "Bold", "Italic" or "Underline" formatting.
 
 
 
==Do and don't==
 
 
 
Do not change the icon or label of a toggle button. The fact that it is pressed down is enough.
 
 
 
Since a toggle button represents a state, in most cases the label should be a noun rather than a verb.
