Publishing is not the same as saving. If, for example, a blog is moderated, saving a post or comment does not make it public. Publishing occurs when a moderator approves the post or comment.

Use the PublishButton class when creating a custom form for reviewing (and possibly also editing) items stored in a SharePoint Foundation list.

You can only use the PublishButton control for items on lists that are enabled for moderation.

The following code samples show how to instantiate a PublishButton object, give it a text label, and then, in the C# and Visual Basic .NET code samples, add the PublishButton to the controls collection of the page.


<SharePoint:PublishButton runat="server" ID="CustomFormPublishButton" Text="I Approve!" />


PublishButton CustomFormPublishButton = new PublishButton();

[Visual Basic]

Dim CustomFormPublishButton As PublishButton = New PublishButton()
