Previous pageTable of contentsNext page
You can choose among several button/link actions, depending on the operation to be performed on the page controls.
The action can be chosen in the control description ("General" tab).
Let's see some examples of "standard" uses of buttons/links in a page:
  • Send the data found in the current page to the server for processing
    Example: Registration form: the link is used to check the validity of information entered and to display a confirmation page.
    To perform this type of process, use a link with the action "Send the values to the server". The page data is sent to the server in order to be processed.
  • Perform a process on the server, without retrieving the data of the current page
    Example: Menu page made of buttons: each button is used to start a page of the site.
    To perform this type of process, use a button with the action "Do not send anything to the server".
  • Perform a process in browser code
    Example: Performing a simple calculation locally, an input check, ...
    To perform this type of process, use a button with the action "Do not send anything to the server".
  • Display a page external to the WEBDEV site
    Example: Launch a search engine site via a button.
    To perform this type of process, use a button with the action "Do not send anything to the server".
  • Reinitialize the page controls
    Example: Link used to clear the controls found in the current page.
    To perform this type of process, use a button with the action "Delete content of the controls in the browser"
