Submitbuttons Part 2 (Graphics)

The submitbuttons you create with input type=submit are dull so we want
graphical submit buttons
example 1 gives one button
example 2 gives two actions in one graphic button
ex.1
<NAME='buttonName' TYPE='IMAGE' border=0 SRC='/icons/button.gif'>
you generate a graphic button and the trik is to add three fields to your notes
form
ButtonName
ButtonName.x
ButtonName.y
You have now generated a graphical submit in notes
------------------------------------
example 2
you need to measure your picture
in this case we say we have a image of 100 pixels

<NAME='buttonName' TYPE='IMAGE' border=0 SRC='/icons/button.gif'>

ButtonName
ButtonName.x
ButtonName.y
and a field ACTION that computes witch action was chosen

Formula for action ===
@If(
@TextToNumber(ButtonName.x)<50;"action1";"action2")
You can use the result in the $$return.
