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()

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);
 }
