LiveCycle Designer: format a button as an image

In LiveCycle Designer (vs. 8), I would like to make an image behave like a button. That is, have the picture of a little lock as a button that would react when pushed by locking fields. I have the button made with the coding all worked out and tested. I have found a text lock (Webdings, 0207). But this lock is not very pretty.
My clients would prefer an image.
Or is there a way to change the xml coding caption/value/text to something like caption/value/image...?

I tried several tricks but couldn't make an image into a button or format a button using a picture so I'm voting that it isn't do-able but Adobe should have implemented this feature by now.

I came up with a solution of wrapping both an image and the already made button, format the button with same color theme, and use a border only on the subform. It looks like it is part of the same button. However, need to work on rendering the image invisible, like the button when pushed.
