Here's an example of a Monetary Rocker switch. It has 3 states and always returns to the middle position after being pressed.
I want to use this in iOS and Android and web, is there any stock control or standard approach for this? If not, would love some ideas :)
EDIT - Why we want this
Our app controls the
ON/OFF state of a WiFi socket plugged into a wall, a bit like a WeMo. A standard
switch control is good for this. Easy.
But... some sockets aren't so smart. You can only ask them to turn
OFF, they can't actually confirm if it worked. So the app doesn't know if the socket is
OFF. So one solution is an
ON/OFF button that doesn't store the state of the last action. A rocker switch is a bit like this.
Does that make any sense :) ?
