CFormButtonElement

Package system.web.form
Inheritance class CFormButtonElement » CFormElement » CComponent
Since 1.1
Source Code framework/web/form/CFormButtonElement.php
CFormButtonElement represents a form button element.

CFormButtonElement can represent the following types of button based on type property: The type property can also be a class name or a path alias to the class. In this case, the button is generated using a widget of the specified class. Note, the widget must have a property called "name".

Because CFormElement is an ancestor class of CFormButtonElement, a value assigned to a non-existing property will be stored in attributes which will be passed as HTML attribute values to the CHtml method generating the button or initial values of the widget properties.
