Button Constructor

Initializes a new instance of the Button class.

Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

public Button ()
public Button ()
public function Button ()

By default the Button displays no caption. To specify the caption text, set the Text property.

The following code example creates a Button, sets its DialogResult property to the OK value of DialogResult, and adds it to a Form.

private void InitializeMyButton()
 {
    // Create and initialize a Button.
    Button button1 = new Button();
 
    // Set the button to return a value of OK when clicked.
    button1.DialogResult = DialogResult.OK;
 
    // Add the button to the form.
    Controls.Add(button1);
 }
 

private void InitializeMyButton()
{
    // Create and initialize a Button.
    Button button1 = new Button();
    
    // Set the button to return a value of OK when clicked.
    button1.set_DialogResult(get_DialogResult().OK);
    
    // Add the button to the form.
    get_Controls().Add(button1);
} //InitializeMyButton

private function InitializeMyButton()
 {
    // Create and initialize a Button.
    var button1 : Button = new Button();
 
    // Set the button to return a value of OK when clicked.
    button1.DialogResult = System.Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK;
 
    // Add the button to the form.
    Controls.Add(button1);
 }
