An untested suggestion...

Maybe you could create the button with an image?

You could create an off-screen window, use XYOUTS to create your text,
and then TVRD the image.  Then you can create the button with the
BITMAP keyword, using the image you just loaded.  I can see lots of
places to go awry, especially on how to make a window of the right
size.  Good luck!
