About the Button Widget
In your web screens you can submit data, execute an action or navigate in your web flow. This behavior is implemented by the Button widget or by the Link widget.
The difference between these two widgets, besides their look and feel, is that in the Link you can decide whether the input values provided by the end-user are submitted or not. How?
The Destination property of the Button allows you to specify the flow of your eSpace. To specify the destination of this widget set the Destination property with the suitable value. How?
Possible Destinations for Button
The possible destinations for a button are:
Action: Simply select an action among all the screen actions created for the current screen. The possible actions are: (New Action) which creates a new screen action and all the screens actions of the current screen, sorted by name. The action is executed immediately after the end-user clicks on the button widget. In the action flow decide the screen where the flow continues through the Destination element or, refresh parts of the current screen using the Ajax Refresh Tool.
Use IntelliWarpTM to create a link to a screen action that is automatically created and designed for you by the Service Studio. Learn more about Using IntelliWarp.
Web Screen: Simply select a screen among all the possible screens available. The possible screens are: the (Current Screen), the web screens graphically connected to the current screen, sorted by name, or you can choose the (Another Destination) option to use a screen that is not connected yet. See Select Destination Window.
If the destination of your button has input parameters, you have to specify the values that you want to send to that screen or action. This is done by specifying the Arguments property of the widget. How?
If you double-click on the Button widget, in your screen flow, Service Studio automatically opens the destination of that widget: either a screen editor or an action flow.
To improve the interaction with the user, you can specify a default button, invoked when the end-user presses ENTER. See Default Button or Link.
