The DefaultButton component is your basic button. It can have a text and an icon, and both are optional (although having one or the other is important).


Creating buttons

A button can be created as follows:

add(new DefaultButton("Click me", FaIcon.faHeart, b -> MsgBox.info(this, "Hi, I was clicked!")));



Rendering and styles


The DefaultButton component renders the following structure when both text and icon are present:

<button class="ui-button" type="button>
  <span class="ui-icon">
    <span class="fa fa-heart />
  </span>
  <span class="ui-btntext">Click me</span>
</button>
