represents a toggler button that cycles through any sequence of values vali.
Toggler[x, {val1->pict1, val2->pict2, ...}]
cycles through values vali displaying them as picti.
Toggler[x, vlist, dpict]
displays as dpict if x is none of the vali.
  • Toggler[x] by default displays as x.
  • Clicking anywhere inside a Toggler advances to the next value.
  • Shift-clicking goes to the previous value.
  • The dpict case cannot be reached by clicking, only by externally setting x.  »
  • The vali and picti in Toggler can be strings, boxes, graphics or any other expressions, including dynamic expressions.  »
  • The following options can be given:
AutoActionFalsewhether to change the toggler automatically when the mouse is over it
BaselinePositionAutomaticalignment relative to surrounding text
BaseStyle{}base style specifications for the displayed toggler
EnabledAutomaticwhether the toggler is enabled, or grayed out
