Class ButtonFormInput

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    HTMLTagElement, java.io.Serializable


    public class ButtonFormInput
    extends FormInput
    The ButtonFormInput class represents a button input type in an HTML form. The trailing slash "/" on the ButtonFormInput tag allows it to conform to the XHTML specification.

    Here is an example of a ButtonFormInput tag calling a javascript defined within a HTML page:
    <input type="button" name="button1" value="Press Me" onclick="test()" />

    Here is a sample javascript which displays an alert box with the specified message:

      <head>
      <script language="javascript">
         function test()
         {
            alert("This is a sample script executed with a ButtonFormInput.")
         }
      </script>
      </head>
      

    ButtonFormInput objects generate the following events:

    • PropertyChangeEvent
    • VetoableChangeEvent
