Editing Submit Button Text

Print Friendly and PDF Follow

You can change the text of any of the "submit" buttons in the Ares web forms simply by editing the text in the appropriate HTML form, as the actions of these buttons are controlled by the code in the html form.

Name Value

All of the submit buttons in the Ares HTML forms have a name value of Submit Button. The text that each form displays on the web is located in the value field of the html entry.

Examples for the IRFBook.html and GLogon.html forms:

<input type="submit" name="SubmitButton" tabindex="500" value="Submit Item" />
<div class="f-submit-wrap">
<input type="submit" name="SubmitButton" value="Logon to Ares" class="f-submit" tabindex="15" /> 
<span class="subdued" style="vertical-align:text-top"><a href="ares.dll?action=10&form=85">Forget your password?</a></span>

Changing the Text

If you want to change the text of a submit button, simply edit the text within the value field.

Below we have changed the text for the SubmitButton in the IRFBook form from "Submit Item" to "Click to Submit."

<input type="submit" name="SubmitButton" tabindex="500" value="Click to Submit" />

Edit Forms

If you edit the value of an item submission form, you may also want to edit the value of the corresponding Edit form (IRFBook and EditIIRFBook). 

Likewise, if you edit the logon form, GLogon, you will want to change the GLogon2 form as well since it is displayed if the user incorrectly enters their username or password.

The WebFormValues table is not used with the Submit buttons in Ares. It will be removed from the Customization Manager in a future version of Ares.
