IMAGEBUTTON #handle, urlExpr$, handler

The IMAGEBUTTON statement adds a button object to the web page at the current position.  The button object is assigned to the variable named #handle.  The urlExpr$ is used to find a graphics file from the Run BASIC web server.  By default it will look in the resources folder specified on the Preferences tab.  The handler is either the name of a branch label, or the name of a sub.

When the button is clicked, the name of the handle variable is assigned to the global variable EventKey$.  If the handler is a named sub, then the name of the handler is passed into the sub as a string parameter.


  'add a button which will call a branch label
  imagebutton #open, "/openbutton.png", [openClicked]
  'add a button which will call a scoped subroutine
  imagebutton #save, "/savebutton.png", saveClicked

  print "Open was clicked!"
  print EventKey$

sub saveClicked handle$
  print "Save was clicked!"
  print handle$
  print EventKey$
end sub
