Multiple actions for touch screen buttons

It would be a nice feature to have where we could add more touch screen button actions.

Do you have an example of multiple actions that you would like to perform? I have created solutions using application logic to perform those actions, but perhaps you have something I cannot be done that way.
Good morning Edward,
Thank you for your comment.
I created simple base page with two buttons
Back – with action to close active page (available in drop down list)
Home – with action to take me to specific page.
I also have number of other pages in the program which refer to main base page. Depending which touch button is pressed I have layers and groups with visible flags. I already have logic created to handle page navigation and visible flags resets but this requires extra logic. If I could specify multiple actions for one touch button (close active page + reset visible flag) that would be more efficient?
I am still finding new ways of dealing with display pages. If you have any suggestions, I would greatly appreciate them.
Anyhow, thank you for your time and comment.
Typically I use a finite state machine channel to handle display pages. This allows me to perform specific page transitions. I then map the states to internal digital channels (IDC) and which are used in the show property. The IDC can be used by multiple functions.
I did not think of using FSM to handle display control. Very interesting suggestion. Thank you very much. This is very helpful.
No problem. It has worked out well for me. I wish now there was a way to directly control display page with FSM, instead of having to define all the IDC and show properties. But perhaps that is a future request.
