When you add a Button control to a harness, the button is located in a cell at the bottom of the run-time form. An application user clicks the button to execute an activity.
- Styling options for Button controls
Establishing a consistent look for Button controls in your application saves development time, gives your application a more predictable user interface, and makes it easier for users to complete forms.
- Specifying the caption for a Button control
Using a caption for a Button control makes it easier for application users to understand the button's purpose and to complete their tasks.
