Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding submit and reset buttons, part of RoboHelp 9 HTML Essential Training.
Well, as we continue to work on our simple form, which is designed for us to…receive feedback from a user of our help system, it's time now to add the two…buttons that people will use, either to submit this content or to reset the…form and start over.…So let's just hit Enter a couple of times if we have to here after our…additional comments field, and this is where we are going to insert our two buttons.…We'll start with the Submit button.…So we go up to the Insert menu, down to HTML, and then down to Form, and one of…the Form Elements we want in this case is a Submit button.…
So we give it a click and then notice it says Submit Query.…So we can change that obviously.…Let's double-click the button itself to open up the button Properties, and you…can see what it's doing. It's submitting.…And we can either see the caption, which will be Submit Query, or if we prefer,…we could use an image, and in that case you probably want to find the image that…suits a submit or send option.…Let's go back to caption here.…

Q: When I insert the ActiveX Calendar control and try to hide the title by setting the ShowTitle property to false, the title is not removed and remains visible. Why is this happening?
A: There are many ActiveX controls available and many versions of a control may exist. Different versions of a control can behave differently. Certain properties may work in one version of a control and not in another. ActiveX controls can be installed on your computer by different programs other than RoboHelp, such as Microsoft Excel and Access. In this title, version 11.0 of the Calendar control is used. If you are using a different version of the Calendar control, the ShowTitle property may not work properly. Go to www.microsoft.com to learn more about ActiveX controls and their properties.
