Developed to use case where you want to present values in form with label, but offer edit functionality when clicked. Normal button also reserves caption for itself; where LabelButton leaves presentation of caption to parent layout, and uses value as it's own presentation value. This could be useful in forms where leaving caption out breaks the nice look'n feel of layout.

Add-on has been OSGi bundled.

Sample code

LabelButton label = new LabelButton("Caption", "Show notification", event -> Notification.show("Clicked!"));

// Add-on provides some nice styling out-of-box. There add link style underlining and pointer cursor
label.addStyleName(LabelButtonStyles.HOVER_UNDERLINE_WHEN_CLICKABLE);
label.addStyleName(LabelButtonStyles.POINTER_WHEN_CLICKABLE);

parentLayout.add(label);

// .. you can easily jump between normal label and clickable state with
label.setClickable(false); // behaves like normal label
// .. and
label.setClickable(true); // enables all click features and styling
