I'd say that's not so much a button as a popup / dropdown menu. Depending on exactly what you want, you can probably make them out of custom components. You could do this by having custom components that "expand" to another state on mouse over.
I'd recommend checking out the FlashCats tutorial on creating a wireframe dropdown container, and think about replacing click events with mouseover events.
One last thing on the same topic. The problem I am having now is I cannot seem to have the dropdown menu go away when rolled off of and when I use the Roll Out function, as soon as you roll off of the prime 'button' the drop down menu goes away. Do you know how to combat that problem?
I'd say custom components are the right approach, and I'd use an "invisible" button to control the roll out command for the selected menu.
