I'm struggling to find any working examples that are not deprecated. If anyone can direct me towards any that would be great.

For learning purposes I want to setup a button that will send 1 Solana from a connected wallet to a user-specified recipient address.

Any help appreciated, thank you.

To send SOL with a button, here's an example using the dapp-scaffold:

import { WalletNotConnectedError } from "@solana/wallet-adapter-base";
import { useConnection, useWallet } from "@solana/wallet-adapter-react";
import { Keypair, SystemProgram, Transaction } from "@solana/web3.js";
import React, { FC, useCallback } from "react";

export const SendLamportsToRandomAddress: FC = () => {
  const { connection } = useConnection();
  const { publicKey, sendTransaction } = useWallet();

  const onClick = useCallback(async () => {
    if (!publicKey) throw new WalletNotConnectedError();

    const transaction = new Transaction().add(
        fromPubkey: publicKey,
        toPubkey: Keypair.generate().publicKey,
        lamports: 1_000_000,

    const signature = await sendTransaction(transaction, connection);

    await connection.confirmTransaction(signature, "processed");
  }, [publicKey, sendTransaction, connection]);

  return (
    <button onClick={onClick} disabled={!publicKey}>
      Send lamports to a random address!

Solana's Wallet Adapter for React has multiple starters on the Github Repo; you can use that and the example on the README to connect a wallet and create that button that sends a transaction.

There's also other packages for other frontend frameworks made by the community:
