Modifying Buttons

Buttons are used to execute an action. Form buttons are generally used to submit form data to the server or to reset the form. Standard form buttons are typically labeled Submit, Reset, or Send. In addition to the standard form buttons, you can assign other processing tasks that you’ve defined in a script or behavior to create a custom button. After you create a button, you can use the Properties panel to set or change options for the form objects.
