Industrial Style Push buttons

Hi guys,

I have been working with IQAN MD4s for a little bit now and I am curious if there are any developments in making push buttons for the MD4? I typically use industrial type HMIs but we have been starting to use the MD4 for the environment aspect. In a particular application I am working on now, it requires the HMI to have some push buttons for the operator to have some control through the screen. It would be nice to have a few options of pre-installed buttons so I can assign some internal digital registers. 

What I had to do to get around this was create my own bitmap buttons, import them in as images, create virtual digital inputs, and use the custom button with my made images to act as a button. It was a little cumbersome and tedious so I thought that would be something really helpful to implement into a rev of IQAN 5. 

Hope this is an idea that will be considered.
