Switch container button background image when selected?

I am using containers with an image as the background in order to have custom buttons that match out UI

I want the buttons to be switched out to a button with a purple glow when the button is selected. (we have the image for the button with the purple glow)

Is there an easy way to achieve this effect?

Yes, you can conditionally show the purple glow button and hide the unselected button on click Show Elements Conditionally - Feathery Docs

This can be done by adding a “save custom value” action to the buton to set the value of a hidden field and using it to show/hide the butons
