Dynamically Creating Buttons

Hi Graham,
Your best friend may be the templateButton.  You can set the properties of
it before issuing the create button command so it looks exactly what you
want.  To set the position you want, I'd use the topLeft property and the
name or label property for the text to appear in the button.  Only thing to
remember is to reset the templateButton before and after each button is
