Applicable to Theme Cosmos applications

By consistently using the predefined presentation formats for Button controls in your application, you make the user interface more predictable and help users complete forms more intuitively.

Before you begin: Add a Button control to the layout. For more information, see Adding UI components to a view.
  1. Open the view with the control that you want to edit.
    For more information, see Accessing views in your application.
  2. In the configuration pane on the right side of the window, hover over the control, and then click the Edit icon.
  3. On the Presentation tab, in the Control format list, define the style that you want to apply to the control.
    The UI Gallery landing page contains a working example of the Link control and its formats, which you can use as a reference. For more information, see Accessing the UI Gallery.
  4. To convert existing customized Button controls to a predefined format, use the pzUpdateButtonLinkFormats activity.
  5. To add a label to the Button control, select the Include a label check box, and then, in the adjacent field, enter the text for the label or press the Down Arrow key and select a predefined label.
  6. To specify a format for the label, press the Down Arrow key in the Label format field and select a format.
  7. Click Apply.
