Obvousily the code will be in the when-validate-trigger of the pushbutton

what the heck....
I think I did do it once.... by using the when button push... and use go_item('item_with_lov')

make the LOV display automatically on click.... or you can set it to check for LOV and put like ....
:blockname.item_with_lov := 'some stupid value';
then it will pop out the LOV... :)

In clear stages....

Set the mouse navigate property of the button on the toolbar to false (to stop focus moving to the button when you click it).
Create a WHEN-BUTTON-PRESSED trigger on the button, in the trigger put DO_KEY('LIST_VALUES'); - this will display whatever LOV is associated with the item focus was in when the button was pressed.

I used Vlad answer, it was cleaner and easier for me. Although Petwg answer works too.
