I have a listing of files available for download. I am using a "link" view to create the full file link. Rather than display a link in the listing, I'd like to have a button for each file for download. How would I go about accomplishing this?

Hi Rick,
Will the download attribute in the link do the trick (see here )? You can also add CSS to format the link to look like a button.

Thanks for that. However, it is really whole creation of the button itself that I cannot figure out. The LINK view creates the link, but I don't want just a text link. I want a button, and I cannot figure out how to do that. There is SO little documentation of CCv6.

Style the link as a button.
Add "ui button" to the class.
Chronoforms uses Semantic UI, see here for more details.

Thank you healyhatman! And especially for the link to SemanticUI. I was not aware of that, so that is a tremendous help. I have been using these products for a LONG time, but each time I move to a new version I start the learning process all over again.
