HTML DOM Button object


Button object

A Button object represents a button in an HTML document.

This element has no default behavior, but must have an onclick event handler in order to use it.

Each time the <input type="button"> tag appears in an HTML document, a Button object is created.

You can access a button by iterating over the form's elements[] array, or by using document.getElementById().
