Subject Re: PushButton in Toggle Mode
Date Wed, 19 Aug 2009 22:20:26 GMT
...then again, maybe I am wrong about this. Would it make more sense  
to adopt the behavior that, if a toggle-style push button is part of a  
group, it behaves like a radio button and can't be deselected, but  
when not in a group can be toggled on and off? I'm starting to think  
that this is a good idea.
