is there a legitimate way to see if a button is clicked in C#?
I have already tried if(this.button1.enable==true) but that doesn't work in my code. I have to check a couple of buttons in each IF Statement.
Please Help!

Checked how? Why wouldn't you handle the Click event of the button? The sender parameter would tell you which button was clicked (assuming you hooked multiple buttons up to the same handler function).

private void button1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
    MessageBox.Show(string.Format("'{0}' button was clicked!", (sender as Button).Name));
}

Simple, When ever the button gets clicked its handler gets called.
For each button have a flag(boolean) in your code and set it to true when ever the button gets clicked.

private bool IsButton1,IsButton2;

private void button1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
    IsButton1=true;
}

private void button2_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
    IsButton2=true;
}

If you are going for something like a state button, you should use a CheckBox and set its Appearance to Button.
