Can you style PNG button colors: Hover, Pressed, In Focus beyond the original normal color?
Use another file format? These originate Illustrator.
You can set the SVG on a button object using the button set up. The + button allows you to add an SVG. You can't use an SVG directly; you can instead use an SVG on the button object.
We have free tool that can take an SVG and get it set for FIleMaker. SVGInator
Do you have a PNG on your layout that you've turned into a button? What version of FM are you using?
You can't do much with that.
If you use this PNG and others for each state (Choose "Image" instead of solid color) on a button, then you can replicate the different states
The best thing to do is use SVGs. where you can adjust the color of the icon for each state.
You can control the File and Lines for each of the Graphic States of a button (Hover, Pressed, In Focus). On the fill side you can select a color, a gradient or an image. That is the limit of the button formatting.
You can always create your own PNG graphic and import it and can do whatever you want with Photoshop or Illustrator. FM's tools are pretty limited regarding graphic formatting to just the basics which is adequate for most FM work. I frequently make buttons in Photoshop and import them for use in FM. Within a button, they can also be an image within a button which is sometimes useful.
I am unable to set the style colors of a PNG file in FMP 16.
I am not able to drag and drop an SVG file to a FMP 16 layout.
Got it, thanks for the SVGInator!
Side question, I am using a separate field as the button label. It allows changing languages on the site. I there a way to coordinate them when either the icon or label field is hovered have both change styles color?
There's possibly a way but it's a bit convoluted
Your best bet is to use a button bar, a single-button button bar
This allows for the svgs as we talked about as well as a calculated piece of text for the button label. Then you can use the states and style the icon and the text the same color. Do this on the "button segment" part of the button bar object.
