Pivot also provides a number of additional button classes that expand on the functionality offered by the basic button types:

  • ListButton - Also known as "drop-downs", list buttons are similar to an HTML <select> element. They are discussed in the Lists section of the tutorial.

  • MenuButton - Menu buttons are similar to list buttons but provide drop-down access to a popup menu rather than a list; they are discussed in the Menus section.

  • CalendarButton - Provide drop-down access to a calendar component; discussed in the Calendars section.

  • ColorChooserButton - Provide drop-down access to a color chooser component; discussed in the Color Choosers section.

Menu.Item and MenuBar.Item are two additional Button subclasses. They are used primarily by the menu components and are discussed in the Menus section.
