An Action Button is an HTML5 <button> element that can be configured to trigger a server-side action on a database object.

An action button can be connected to Active Input Elements or Active Output Elements by listing the name attribute of the source element in the attributes field of the action button. There are currently six types of action buttons that can be used to interact with a Structr application. An Action Button should be enclosed in a <form> element to allow Structr to find any surrounding dynamic elements.
