To use the Command Group builder
  1. Using the Form Controls toolbar, place a command group control on a form.

  2. Select and right-click the command group control, and then choose Builder from the Form Designer shortcut menu.

    A dialog box appropriate to the selected control appears.

  3. Choose the options you want from the dialog box, and then choose OK.

    When you choose OK, the builder closes, applying the property settings from every tab.

Command buttons may have captions, or graphics, or both. You can also specify graphics to be displayed when the button is disabled and when it is pressed, but you must do so programmatically or in the Properties window. For more details, see the DisabledPicture and DownPicture properties.
