This control is part of iWebKit, which has been deprecated.

The ButtonBar is used to display a bar with 2 to 3 buttons. It can either be position at the top of the form, or further down. These are usually used for apps with multiple forms to switch between. Each form will have a buttonbar control on it, with a different button highlighted.

The only event that is returned is <control_id>_onbuttonclick(item).

To add a button to your app, choose the ButtonBar icon in the Toolbar, then position it on the Design Screen. Use the Property Editor to set the properties you need, then add an _onbuttonclick(item) function to your code
