deprecated class %ZEN.Component.button extends %ZEN.Component.control

Button control.
This is a wrapper around the HTML input=button control.
The text displayed within the button is defined by the caption property. Typically an application will set the onclick property (inherited from the control) of the button to a JavaScript expression that is executed when the user clicks the button.
