Customization is one aspect of decision tree creation that we’re really big on — Zingtree’s new Custom Buttons are the latest extension of that practice. With this tool, you can create buttons that look a little something like this:

Overview: All About Custom Buttons

With the new Custom Buttons, you can make a range of adjustments to the style of your decision tree buttons, including:

  • Setting a button color
  • Adding an icon to a button
  • Combining colors and icons
  • Creating your own custom buttons (CSS)

Customizing the style of a button is done by prefixing the button text with special classes. To choose a color, use a prefix like:

  • .btn-orange
  • .btn-red
  • .btn-green
  • .btn-blue
  • .btn-yellow
  • .btn-sky
  • .btn-purple
  • .btn-pink

To add an icon that helps to show a little more context, add a prefix like:

  • .btn-yes
  • .btn-no
  • .btn-careful
  • .btn-caret
  • .btn-arrow
  • .btn-thumbs-up
  • .btn-thumbs-down
  • .btn-information
  • .btn-question

You can even make a special combo, mixing colors and icons together. For example, .btn-yes.btn-green will appear as:
