  • define images to illustrate the button or customize its shape. For more details, see Images and buttons.

  • WINDEV use RTF to format the button caption.
    Remark: To use RTF in a Button control, check "RTF" in the "General" tab of the control description. The RTF configuration bar appears above the caption of the control in order to configure it easily. You also have the ability to directly copy an RTF code in the control caption.

Button control in a page

A Button control can have different aspects:
  • text
  • Fixed image or image with hover
One or two images are associated with the button:
  • an image for the button in its "normal" state,
  • an image for its "hover" state (when hovered by the mouse).
In this case, independent images are used.
  • Images with several states
Different drawings are associated with the button. These drawings are grouped together in one image called "image set". You can use up to 5 drawings. The drawings correspond to the following button states: normal / pressed / grayed / focus / hover.

The appearance of the Button control can be defined in the "Style" tab of the control description window, in "Button (Images)".
Various aspects allow you to define the action of the button and the different events run when the Button control is clicked:

To create a Button control:
  1. On the "Creation" tab, in the "Usual controls" group, click "Button" (or click ).
