Add a Button Control to a Form
A Button control is capable of executing a single Action when selected (example: Run an Action/One-Step Action).
Good to Know:
- A Button control is highly configurable; you can add one or many to a form, then define the Action to execute when the button is clicked, and how the button looks and behaves on the form (example: Text, tooltip, size, color, border style, image, alignment, anchoring, layering, visibility, and enabling/disabling).
- Text, image, and colors can be conditional (expression-driven).
- See Form Editor Behaviors for tips on working with controls and the Form Editor.
To add a Button control to a form:
- Open a form in the Form Editor.
- Drag-and-drop the Button control from the Standard Control tree onto the form.
- Define the Action to execute when the button is clicked:
- Right-click the Button control, and then select Control Properties.
- In the Choose Action window, select the ellipsis to open the Action Manager, and then select the Action to execute.
- Define the text to display on the button:
- In the Label text box on the Form Editor toolbar, enter the text to display on the Button control.
- (Optional) Change the font, font size, font style, and font alignment if needed.
- Define how the button looks and behaves on the Form (example: Size, alignment, etc.).
