How do you run a simulation with a push-button? https://www.circuitlab.com/circuit/kt3257qd37jw/toggle-switch/

One of many possible ways is to use a voltage-controlled switch. Then, have it be controlled by a piecewise-step signal (PWS for short) that turns on and off at the appropriate times. Here's one with that looks closed at t=1 and open again at t=2:
Click it and run the simulation. See what V(control) and V(output) look like.
See Expressions in the CircuitLab documentation for more info about PWS and related expressions.

Thanks Mike - I'm still struggling with the interface. I really didn't think I had to think about cos/sin to test-drive a circuit :) Thanks for pointing out the error of my ways.

No cosine and sines necessary -- those are just other expressions that are also available! :)
PWS is pretty simple. It just says to be a some voltage at some time, and then jump to another value at/after a different time.
