Button Attributes

There are several attributes available to buttons, and they are different depending on how the button is created.  Figures 10.11 and 10.12 show some of the subtle differences between the two.

Figure 10.11 shows the attributes page for a button created in a region position and the attributes are explained below.

Button Attributes for Buttons in a Region Position

  • Sequence:  The order in which the button will be rendered.  If there are two buttons with the same button position, the sequence determines in which order they are rendered.  The sequence attribute is used to control the form layout.

  • Button Name:  The name of the button.

  • Text Label / Alt:  If the button style is set to HTML Button or Template based button, this is the text displayed in the button.  If the button is an image, this is the text for the HTML ALT tag.

  • Display in Region:  This is the region in which the button will be rendered and displayed.

  • Button Position:  This was explained in detail in previous sections in this chapter.  See Figures 10.7 and 10.8.

  • Button Alignment:  This designates whether the button should align to the left or the right.  The default setting is to align to the right.  Figure 10.8 shows how the buttons will display if the alignment is set to the left.

  • Button Style:  There are three options: HTML Button; Template Based Button; and Image.

    • HTML Button:   Displays as a standard HTML button.  When this style is chosen, the Button Attributes field is enabled.  There, CSS code can be entered to modify the look of the button (i.e. style="width:100;").  CSS is explained in a later chapter.

    • Template Based Button:   The look for this style will be determined by the templates in the active theme.

    • Image:  This style of button expects an image file such as edit.gif.  The button can either be stored in the HTML DB repository or as a file on disk.  Image Attributes, such as title="Press to search for a Customer.", may also be set.

  • Database Action:   The database action is used together with the Automatic Row Processing (DML) process types to issue dynamic database INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE statements.  This attribute is only available for a button in a region position.
