Title: Pushbutton

Abstract: An improved pushbutton has a pair of elastic sections sandwiching a protrusive button. The elastic section includes a pair of elastic and flexible strips formed in an undulate manner to become a buffer member abutting a lateral side of the button to position the button in a vertical fashion. When the button is subject to a force the elastic sections may be compressed. When the force is released, the elastic sections are extended. The button may be embedded in a LCD panel at a smaller space, thus the overall size of the panel may be reduced.
