    This is basically so you can use variables on indicator codes.. like:

    I,xxx,...,xxx,"FILE;$IMGIND$"

    Then use different commands to swap the image of the indicator, like:

    "SETVAR;IMGIND;Indicator1.gif"
    "SETVAR;IMGIND;Indicator2.gif"
    "SETVAR;IMGIND;Indicator3.gif"
    "SETVAR;IMGIND;Indicator4.gif"

    etc.. this example is just an alternative from actually renaming or changing the file itself. But there are other possible uses.

    i can see using that with some custom indicators. I thought it might have something to do with an indicator being able to send a variable when ON.

    You can most definitely do something like:

    "SETVAR;PAGEIND;gpsgas_0_icon" or "SETVAR;PAGEIND;gpsgas_6_icon" and use:

    I,54,65,40,40,"$PAGEIND$"

    then have another corresponding variable for buttons...

    I do intend to make a feature to execute commands based on indicator states.

    thats good to hear I've been looking for ways to do that now but the only way i've figured out how to do that is with an external program sending REQUEST ever so often

    I actually tried this before your post and again after you post but I cannot seem to get it to work

    Button
    "SETVAR;GASICON1;gas_1 _icon"
    Indicator
    "$GASICON1$"

    Sorry Chuck, this only works with direct file names:

    Button
    "SETVAR;GASICON1;gas_1 _icon.gif"
    Indicator
    "FILE;$GASICON1$"

    I don't believe I can make it directly by variable as you previously attempted. I'll research.
