Image Fields

Instead of the standard gray push buttons that usually appear in forms, you can use images as buttons. This method only works for Submit buttons.

To create an image field

1.
Click to place the insertion point at the place on the form where you want the image button to appear.

2.
From the menu bar, select Insert > Form > Image Field.

or

Click the Image Field button on the Forms category of the Insert bar, or drag the button to the page.

The Select Image Source dialog box will appear (Figure 15.55).

Figure 15.55. The dialog box for inserting an image field is exactly like the generic Select Image Source dialog box.

This dialog box is just like the Insert Image dialog box. Type the pathname of the image in the Image File text box, or select the image from your hard drive.

4.
Click OK (Choose) to close the Select Image Source dialog box. The image will appear in the Document window with a dashed line around it (Figure 15.56).
