While this indeed puts the name/label of the button on *top* of the icon
it is an awkward workaround with deficiencies (concerning the clickable
area of the button).
Another solution would be to set the image/icon as a backpattern of the
button, but this only is feasable for rectangular images, because the
transparent parts of non-rectangular images appear as black when used as
In a number of (eductional) contexts it is necessary to decide upon the
name/label of a button at runtime, meaning to produce pre-fabricated
combinations of images with text would not be a possible solution - for
example for matching or multiple-choice exercises.
We indeed need, in many cases, a feature where non-rectangular and
partly transparent icons can be placed directly under the button name.
