Double action button

I took a quick look at that particular video and it is unfortunately a less than stellar example of a tutorial.  

@PeterT -I would still encourage you to check out the videos to get yourself more up to speed on how Visilogic works, but what you're looking for is a binary text object.  The color on these can be externally controlled and I often use them in place of buttons for this kind of function. 

Control the color itself with your alarm bit or a copy of it and then assign another bit to the touch property to acknowledge the alarm and turn the color controlling bit back off.

If this is confusing try beating on it yourself and then post your plc program and we can give you some guidance.

Thank again for your support, the buttons are now working the way I wanted thanks to your suggestions. 

Please find attached the copy of the program, not finished yet but pretty good considering this is my first ever PPL/HMI programming.

Please let me know what could be improved.

Many thanks
