After reading Steve's post, I may not have appreciated that you wanted some sort of 3-D effect. The James Bond license plate may be fairly well simulated, since you are looking at it "face on". But maybe it is not sexy enough?

Subject: Rotating button

Is it possible to create a polygon button that constantly spins with
different text on each of the visible sides? 2 sides would be parallel to
the eye point so they would never be seen. Sort of like the James Bond
spinning license plate. This button when pressed would fire off a message.
When the message is processed I would like to know the what side(s) were
visible/pressed or know rotation from 0 to 359.999 degrees or rads or
whatever coordinate system's value when the button is pressed. The button
also should stop spinning when pressed.

Thanks all.......
