If that's the behaviour you want, just uses images instead of buttons.
; Create two images...
img-1: to-image layout [backdrop pink text "Image 1"]
img-2: to-image layout [backdrop yellow text "Image 2"]
view layout [
output: field "Click on images"
image img-1 [output/text: "Image 1" show output]
image img-2 [output/text: "Image 2" show output]
Other styles such as images can have a block which will be evaluated
when the style is clicked on - it's not just the obvious ones like
buttons that you can do this with.
Hope that answers your question.
