Buttons can be clicked on by users to initiate actions.

By setting the appearance, buttons can have different colors.

Buttons can be grouped into horizontal and vertical groups.

The color of a Bootstrap button is set by its appearance property. Possible values are

default, primary, success, info, warning, danger and link

To change a button from primary to danger, do this:

$( "#Button6" ).removeClass( "btn-primary" );
$( "#Button6" ).addClass( "btn-danger" );

The colors for each of each of the appearance settings is defined in the Bootstrap them you use. This provides your app with a consistant look and feel throughout.

To change the icon and text at runtime, do this:

Button1.innerHTML = "<span id='Button1_icon' class='fa fa-bus'></span> Button"
Button1_icon.title = "New Title"

Popovers and Tooltips are supported.
