: button

Create a button with or without a label.     DCL Active Tile

This active tile creates a button, with or without a superimposed label. A button is generally used to exit a dialog box or to display another box ("tunneling dialog boxes"). Every dialog box must have at least one button, which is connected to the LISP function done_dialog; otherwise the program hangs.

: button {

          action = "(done_dialog)";

          label = "OK";


NOTE Several predefined tiles provide the most common button clusters, including the ok_cancel_help tiles.
