Hi Experts,

I just wonder if it is possible to make the long "value" of the button split into two lines on the button instead of using a long button?


thanks.

No (well - perhaps in a small number of browsers, but you shouldn't be able to).

If the text is that long I suggest you ask yourself:

1 - Can the same meaning be communicated with less text?
2 - Does all of the text need to be on the button?

Unfortunately, it is not my decision, our users ask for it.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

but if you insist the only way is javascript

<html>
<head>
<title></title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
function init(){
document.forms[0].btn.value = "blahblahblahblah\nblahblahblahblah";
}
// -->
</script>
</head>
<body onload="init();">
<form name="form1" method="post" action="">
<input type="button" name="btn" value="">
</form>
</body>
</html>

you can use an image wich will work as a button, you only need to draw button with the two lines (use paint or something else). once you have the image you can use a javascript.

try this:

<html>
<body>
<style>
<!--
.mouseBeOffMe {
border-top:    10px  solid #FFFFFF;
border-bottom: 10px  solid #FFFFFF;
border-left:   6px   solid #FFFFFF;
border-right:  10px  solid #FFFFFF;
}
.mouseBeOnMe {
border-top:    6px   solid #FFFFFF;
border-bottom: 14px  solid #FFFFFF;
border-left:   10px  solid #FFFFFF;
border-right:  6px   solid #FFFFFF;
}
.mouseBeDown {
border-top:    13px  solid #FFFFFF;
border-bottom: 7px   solid #FFFFFF;
border-left:   10px  solid #FFFFFF;
border-right:  6px   solid #FFFFFF;
}
.mouseBeUp {
border-top:    10px  solid #FFFFFF;
border-bottom: 10px  solid #FFFFFF;
border-left:   10px  solid #FFFFFF;
border-right:  6px   solid #FFFFFF;
}
//-->
</style>

</HEAD>
<BODY>

<center>
<img src="button.gif" border="0" class="mouseBeOffMe" onmouseover="this.className='mouseBeOnMe'" onmousedown="this.className='mouseBeDown'" onmouseup="this.className='mouseBeUp'" onmouseout="this.className='mouseBeOffMe'">
</center>
<-eof->

this will work as a button, you only need to <form>'it :)

thanks. I tried Jay's idea which looks pretty simple. Strangely, it works on a simple htm page, but when I move the codes to my JSP page, it does not work. Any clue why?
