Inserting ColdFusion buttons

Inserting ColdFusion buttons

You can visually insert a ColdFusion button into your form and set its properties. ColdFusion buttons control ColdFusion form operations. Buttons can be used to submit ColdFusion form data to the server or to reset the ColdFusion form. Standard ColdFusion buttons are typically labeled Submit, Reset, or Send. You can also assign other processing tasks that you defined in a script. For example, the button might calculate the total cost of selected items based on assigned values.

This Dreamweaver enhancement is only available if you have access to a computer running ColdFusion MX 7 or later. For more information, see Enabling the ColdFusion enhancements.

To visually insert a ColdFusion button:

  1. Place the insertion point inside the ColdFusion form outline.
  2. In the CFForm category of the Insert bar, click the CF Button icon.

    A button appears in the ColdFusion form.

  3. In the Property inspector, set the button properties.

    For more information, click the Help icon in the Property inspector.
