A button is a utility block that Players can interact with. It can be crafted with wood planks or stone. Buttons can be found naturally in Strongholds, right next to iron doors.

Uses

When used with Redstone, it can activate mechanism-related items, such as doors, pistons or TNT. When pressed, it will send a short pulse of power (lasting approximately 1 second, or 10 ticks) to any Redstone-powered item.

Inside snapshot 12w34a, a wood variation of the regular button was added and is created by placing a wood plank anywhere in the crafting grid.

Trivia

  • Wooden buttons have a longer delay than stone buttons. Stone buttons have a 1-second or 10 tick delay, and wooden buttons have a 1.5 second or 15 tick delay.
  • Wooden buttons can act like levers in the fact that they can send a continuous redstone signal if shot with most types of projectiles. 
  • Stone buttons won't activate if an arrow is shot at them, possibly because it's heavier than wooden buttons.
  • Wooden buttons can be used as fuel for furnaces, giving half an operation (a third of a plank's output).
