Trigger an action when pressed.


This logic was moved from a behaviour to a component for more interconnection of logic. Documentation is being updated.


  • Interacting with this button will send a message to all assets within its broadcast range - This message can trigger events such has: open a door, destroy an asset, heal the player, etc.

PERFORMANCE TIP In multiplayer Experiences, there are two layers of logic that will not communicate with each other: singleplayer [SP] and multiplayer [MP]. For best performance, only apply [MP] behaviours and components to objects that MUST be synchronised to all players (or communicate on that layer), and maximise use of the [SP] (Client Only) layer.

USAGE TIP Button behaviour has a cooldown parameter, Duration, to prevent players from spamming logic triggers. Use this when you want logic to stay active, but not be triggered excessively at once.

Common Uses

  • Send a message to another Object's Toggle Component to activate or deactivate its Behavior (e.g., Platform, Melee Enemy, etc) for a puzzle platformer

  • Apply to Assets such as info panels and trigger the NFT Details Display Component, open doors from a distance, etc.

  • Trigger lights and/or sound to turn on/off

  • Reset logic on a Multiplayer Experience
