    Haven't seen that. But is that a true button or a led light?

    If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.

    Is it a button or an indicator (light bulb or LED or similar?)

    Likely a toggle switch with a built-in indicator.

    Martin, you were there, did you push the button to see what it did? What did the switch control?

    Looks like an old switch with an indicator light.

    Yeah, my question exactly. Interesting that none of us have seen that.

    Probably a glow in the dark glue-on button that was sold on TV. The nature of the switch design makes it almost impossible to install any wires or linkage within the toggle itself.
    Modern lighted toggles have a plastic toggle that transmits light easily from inside the switch, so it would be unnecessary to add a light transmitting rod, unless it was a crude prototype.
