How to center scale a button with text inside a VBoxContainer

Question

Hey there fellas!

I’ve been trying to make a button that scales up when the mouse is over it
but when I do that, the button and the text doesn’t seem to be centered

And the scene structure:

I have tried many solutions, but I didn’t figure out what is wrong

I centered everything in the button:

Even the pivot:

BUT none of it fixed it
Anyone can help me??

put the button inside a control Node first

Nope, Didn’t fix :frowning:

I did that but it still doesn’t center, is there like another sizing variable other than the Scale one??

it’s matter of how you layout the control and button etc
i will need to screenshots alot

VBoxContainer:

PlayButton Node:

the Script

var tw=create_tween().bind_node(%PlayButton).set_loops(-1).set_ease(Tween.EASE_OUT).set_trans(Tween.TRANS_SINE)
tw.tween_property(%PlayButton,"scale",Vector2(1.2,1.2),2).from(Vector2.ONE)
tw.tween_property(%PlayButton,"scale",Vector2.ONE,2)

You need to set the Control.pivot_offset to the center of the button.
