I have looked and looked without success. I can do what I need to do in a ToolBar ... with side effects I don't want.

How can I make a standard "Windows.Forms.Button" act like a toggle button? IE: stay pushed until pushed again.

Please! I'm giving 125 points because I'm urgent, even though I think it's a 50 pointer.

Thanks beforehand.

the last example is a toggle button.

however its alot easier to just set the appearance on a checkbox to be a toggle.(which inherits from ButtonBase as well)

Have you tried the ButtonState Enumeration:

ButtonState.Pushed?
