Thread Safety

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.

Remarks

Use this class to create button controls on a Web page.

Note   This control is similar to the HtmlButton control, except it is supported in all browsers. An HtmlButton control renders as an HTML 4.0 <button> element and is only supported in Microsoft Internet Explorer version 4.0 and later.

For a list of initial property values for an instance of HtmlInputButton, see the HtmlInputButton constructor.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#] The following example demonstrates how to use the HtmlInputButton control to create a submit and a reset button.
