I want to change the text that appears on a button at run time - which will be the text obtained from a column in a row from a table.

Basically how can I change the "label" property for a button at runtime?

_____ Perhaps something like the following __________________________________
Set_Custom_Property( 'BLOCK.ITEM', 1, 'SET_TEXT_LABEL', 'New Label Text' ) ;
