NameIn the Name section, you can change the name and description of the button. The button name is displayed in the activity layout if the Show Label option is set to On or if the Text Only icon is chosen in the Appearance section.
- Normal buttons execute a single action one time when tapped.
- Macro buttons execute more than one action when tapped. Macro buttons are particularly useful for creating buttons that jump to favorite television channels.
- Toggle buttons execute a single action at one time, but cycle through a series of actions when pressed repeatedly. For example, perhaps you want a single button to switch between Play and Pause on successive taps, because combining these actions into one button will save space in your activity layout. You can create a toggle button with two actions — one for Play and one for Pause — so that each time you tap the button, you alternate between the two. Toggle buttons are similar to toggle commands, but more powerful. For example, toggle buttons can work with discrete commands, or even commands that target different devices.
- Repeating buttons function as do Normal buttons when tapped and released. However, if you tap and hold a repeating button, the button’s action is repeated rapidly until you release the button. This type of button is useful for things such as volume and channel functions that "ramp" when you hold them down.
- The Script button type is available if you have the Advanced Options preference turned on. More information on scripting and advanced configuration is available in the RedEye Advanced Programming Manual.
