I keep the gumball panel up all the time. It has an off and on toggle which seems to be backwards. I toggle it off and in the history window it says I have toggled it on and the other way around. It’s just a little confusing.
The toggle button is running the Gumball command. This command prints the current state of the gumball and asks how you wan to to change the gumball state. This is what you are seeing. The button automatically fills in the response “Toggle” and changes the gumball state.
There is also a dedicated button in the toolbar for changing the gumball state and it also indicates the current gumball state.
