What Are Toggle Buttons?

Toggle buttons are a type of button that can be either “on” or “off”. They’re usually used to represent binary states, like whether a light is on or off, or whether a computer is online or offline.

Toggle buttons are different from regular buttons because they stay in the same position after being clicked. So if you have a toggle button that’s set to “on”, clicking it again will turn it off.

In HTML, toggle buttons are buttons that can be toggled between two different states. The most common use for toggle buttons is to show and hide content. For example, you might use a toggle button to hide or show a menu bar.
