Advanced Form Buttons
 
Q: I was told that it's possible to create buttons in Microsoft FrontPage that have pictures on them. I've played around with the push buttons and every option imaginable, but I can't figure out how to put images in my buttons. It's driving me crazy. Can you help? >Amy, Pittsburgh PA
 
A: Amy, you can't put images in normal buttons in FrontPage (or in HTML for that matter). You have to use a FrontPage control called an Advanced Button. You can find it by clicking on Insert > Form > Advanced Button. If you don't see it, try clicking on the little double-arrow at the very bottom of the menu (to open up the menu fully). This feature was first made available in FrontPage 2002 (XP), so if you have FP 2000 or earlier, you will not have this (good time to upgrade).

Now, once you place the button on your form, you can do all kinds of stuff inside the button. You can change fonts, colors, and even put tables and images inside the button face. They're really neat. We teach all about them in our FrontPage 202 course.

Give this a try and see if it works. Hope this helps you.
