Keeping Bangs lit

I’m trying to make a teaching tool, where I tell a bang to light up, and when the student pushes the button, the light turns off, and another light turns on.

Is there any way to tell a bang to stay lit until someone presses it??

or another object that works better.

You could have the button your student presses control a toggle instead of a bang. Then have the toggle turn on/off a metro to send out a bang often enough to make it apear as though the bang is on continuously.

there’s probably smarter ways of doing it, but this works:

Please don’t bang it with a metro to make it look like ON continuously. that feels very wrong. look at this, you can change the color of a bang to make it look like ON even if it’s Off.
