Default QuickAccess Toolbar Icon - How to make the icon display the state of the icon's action

I created a Macro called "ProtectUnprotect" that toggles the document from protected to unprotected mode. I then placed the macro on the QuickAccess Toolbar. It works as it should. Each time I press the icon for the macro it toggles from protect to unprotect. My problem is that several years ago I created the macro and the icon. It used to display the words "Protect" and "unprotect" each time that you would hover over the icon. Now that I have changed computers I cannot remember how I did that. Does anyone know how to do this.

You could instead simply use the LOCK command from the all commands set which obviously displays its setting.
