This control adds a special capability to the standard button. Instead of having a
fixed caption this control animates its caption letter for letter. When animating is done
it fires the completed event in which you could assign a new CaptionText to restart
animating or performing some action (e.g. a countdown on a button which starts the next
page automatically after completion). Moreover the button has got a BorderStyle property
that gives you the possibility to make the button inset.
If you want to use the control on your page, you either have to download the
ASoftSlowMotionButton.CAB file and replace the CODEBASE with the URL where you put the
control or have to replace it with the complete URL of this CAB
(http://www.A-SoftTech.com/ActiveX/ASoftSlowMotionButton.CAB) as shown above.
