---- USAGE
---- clickable button (arrow button)
--local arrow = Texture.new("gfx/arrow_right.png")
--local arrow_pressed = Texture.new("gfx/arrow_right_down.png")
--local button = Button.new(Bitmap.new(arrow), Bitmap.new(arrow_pressed))
--button:addEventListener("click", function()
--	-- your code here
