Block loot[edit]

Redstone power[edit]

A button can be used as a monostable power source (it automatically deactivates shortly after being activated).

Placement
Buttons can be placed by using it on a surface.
They can be attached to the side, bottom and top of any full opaque block.
If placed on the top or bottom of a block, the button can face any direction.‌[Java Edition only]
It can also be attached to the top of a fence in Bedrock edition.
More information about placement on transparent blocks can be found at Opacity/Placement.
Activation
Buttons are usually in an inactive state, but can be temporarily activated by players. A button can be activated by using it. A wooden button can also be activated by a fired arrow or a thrown trident if its collision box touched the button.
Mobs cannot activate buttons directly, but arrows fired by skeletons or dispensers can activate wooden buttons.
Behavior
Whenever activated, a wooden button remains active for 15 redstone ticks (1.5 seconds, barring lag), while a stone button remains active for 10 redstone ticks (1 second, barring lag). A wooden button activated by a fired arrow or a thrown trident remains active until the arrow or trident despawns (after one minute) or is picked up by a player.
While active, a button:
When a button changes state it provides a redstone update to all redstone components adjacent to itself (including above and below), and to all redstone components adjacent to its attachment block.

Fuel[edit]

Wooden buttons can be used as a fuel in furnaces, smelting 0.5 items per button.‌[Java Edition only]
