--- <p>The key to implementing a cancel button -- or any button you where you want
--- to exit the current form and move on to somewhere else -- is to add an event
--- handler to the button which indicates to the form that it should end the form
--- processing, and then checking the if the submit widget of the form is the cancel
--- button.</p>
+++ <p>There are two kinds of "buttons": actions and submits. Actions are internal
+++ to the form, and thus always redisplay it, whereas submits are intended to exit
+++ the form.</p>
    
--- <p>Below follow some snippets which illustrate this.</p>
+++ <p>A <tt>&lt;fd:submit&gt;</tt> normally tries to validate the
form and will
+++ redisplay it in case of validation error, unless it has the
+++ <tt>validate="false"</tt> attribute. A cancel button will have this attribute
+++ set to false, and we will use the value of form.submitId to distinguish the ok
+++ and cancel buttons.</p>
    
--- <p>In the form definition, add the declaration of a cancel button:</p>
+++ <p>In the form definition, add the declaration of ok and cancel buttons:</p>
    
--- <pre>    &lt;fd:action id="cancel"&gt;
+++ <pre>    &lt;fd:submit id="cancel" validate="false"&gt;
          &lt;fd:label&gt;Cancel&lt;/fd:label&gt;
---       &lt;fd:on-action&gt;
---         &lt;fd:javascript&gt;
---           event.getSourceWidget().getForm().endProcessing(false);
---         &lt;/fd:javascript&gt;
---       &lt;/fd:on-action&gt;
        &lt;/fd:action&gt;
+++ 
+++     &lt;fd:submit id="ok"&gt;
+++       &lt;fd:label&gt;OK&lt;/fd:label&gt;
+++     &lt;/fd:action&gt;
    </pre>
    
    <p>In the flowscript, after the <tt>form.showForm</tt> function returns,
you can
--- check if the user pressed the cancel button using form.submitId:</p>
+++ check what button the user pressed using <tt>form.submitId</tt>:</p>
    
    <pre>    var form = new Form("myform.xml");
        form.showForm("myform-display-pipeline");
    
        if (form.submitId == "cancel") {
          // the user pressed cancel
---     }
+++     } else if (form.submitId == "ok") {
+++       // the user pressed ok and the form is valid
+++     } 
    </pre>
