Changing text on buttons

Recommended Posts

I use this on occasion to change the text on buttons, it works very well with IWP for customer selections "with modifications needed - merge variables need to become fields..." , I just thought some one else might benefit from this technique..

but feedback is always appreciated too.

Yes this 'global var as static text' technique works great (at least until FM adds a true button object with 'title' property :)

One minor suggestion: change your Refresh Window commands to Freeze Window to avoid a flash or flicker on complex layouts. The Freeze Window can be anywhere in the script (i.e. can be the last line of code). It forces FM to update all global vars on the layout and conditional formatting without redrawing the entire window.
