ToggleButton Behavior

The :class:`~kivy.uix.behaviors.togglebutton.ToggleButtonBehavior`
`mixin <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mixin>`_ class provides
:class:`~kivy.uix.togglebutton.ToggleButton` behavior. You can combine this
class with other widgets, such as an :class:`~kivy.uix.image.Image`, to provide
alternative togglebuttons that preserve Kivy togglebutton behavior.

For an overview of behaviors, please refer to the :mod:`~kivy.uix.behaviors`


The following example adds togglebutton behavior to an image to make a checkbox
that behaves like a togglebutton::

    from kivy.app import App
    from kivy.uix.image import Image
    from kivy.uix.behaviors import ToggleButtonBehavior

    class MyButton(ToggleButtonBehavior, Image):
        def __init__(self, **kwargs):
            super(MyButton, self).__init__(**kwargs)
            self.source = 'atlas://data/images/defaulttheme/checkbox_off'

        def on_state(self, widget, value):
            if value == 'down':
                self.source = 'atlas://data/images/defaulttheme/checkbox_on'
                self.source = 'atlas://data/images/defaulttheme/checkbox_off'

    class SampleApp(App):
        def build(self):
            return MyButton()
