This works the same as other page items. If set to
YES, the item will be displayed on a new line and will be the first

table cell (<td>) to put the button in. If set to NO, the button
will be displayed in the same table cell as the previous page item.
The default is YES.

page items are displayed in a table cell (<td>), this indicates the

on New Line and Begin on New Field are set to NO.
This really should read Row Span like other page items. This value
is used for the ROWSPAN property for the table cell. This item is
ignored if Begin on New Line and Begin on New Field are set to NO.
This is the text that will be displayed on the button if the button
type is not Image.
This is the value to which the REQUEST will be set when the button
: Figure 10.12 shows the REQUEST being set using

REQUEST could be set using any of the other types such as a SQL
query or PL/SQL function.
