Note:
If the method calling any modal window forms is in the script (e.g. the Pm.InputBox), then it is necessary to place such script into the onButtonUp event (otherwise OS Windows doesn't ensure that the button is drawn correctly).
 
The button can be drawn with the picture. This can be changed by the "T - Data binding to calculation based on a table of values" data binding depending on the state of pressing the button (see StateEx property).

History:
Pm9.00.00: Object name changed: PmiButton -> PmgButton
Pm8.00.13: Other minor bugfixes are related to object.
Pm8.00.07: Icon and text alignment is now working. If the "Show image" configurator is set to "left from text" and the text is still algned to the left, then the icon is also aligned to the left together with the text (it was always centered in the previous versions). It is functional also for Web panels.
