In this paper, we focus on the researching innovation of open-close button of elevator by questionnaire. The text of native language is found the best cognition for button indicator of open-close on the attributes of observability and relative advantage in elevator. The conclusions are: (1) Chinese glyphss “開 (open)” and “關 (close)” are the most easily observable and the highest relative advantage. So the text of native language could be the best for open-close button in elevators. (2) The complex symbols are the thick stroke with multi-element. (3) Important indicators of elevators could not only need thick black and slender arrows, but also it is non-highlighted.
