Controls a light or automation device, has the same function of the button object, but you can choose custom graphic images for the different states. You can add an optional label text next to the image, and define several optional CSS attributes to control the text’s format and position. The “top” CSS attribute is used to move the text from its default position. If top is not defined, the text will be located just below the image. If defined, you can specify a positive or negative offset, in pixels. The zero offset position is at the top corner of the image; a positive offset moves the text down, a negative offset moves the text up.

If the button object is connected to a device or light that allows it, a long press on the button will open a popup with a slider. A second long press will close the popup. If specified on systemtopo.txt, it will show a thumbnail on mouse over or touch.


  • id: the object's ID, used by UISets. Optional

Image files are searched inside the www/<project's name>/img directory first, then inside the www/img directory.
If the filename is set with a UISet, it's possible to load an image from the web by entering the URL, or a path relative to www/<skin's name>/pic by specifying /pic/ followed by the filename
