 2. Change the caption (words) of a button

 3. Make the button invisible (remove the button from the order screen)

The buttons on the Point of Success Order Entry looks like this by default:

Customize Order Entry Buttons


Each button on the bottom of the order screen can be changed. Locations, captions, and actions are associated with each position on the Order Screen. The corresponding button information in each cell represents the information contained and the action of each button. The buttons are in a row from left to right and continue on a second line - but the buttons are in one row on the bottom of the Order Screen.

Each cell can be turned on or off using the 'Visible' property except for the "Done" action which must remain visible. The Done button can be renamed to another word, but the function will remain. If the cell is not visible, a blank spot will be left in the row of buttons where the invisible button should be.

To restore the buttons back to its original state, press the 'Restore Defaults' button. All the buttons and actions will be reset to their factory defaults.

Action: The actions of these buttons are limited in function to Discount, Tips, About, Quantity, Discard, Lookup, Pay, Multiple Portion, Portion Size, Portion ID, and Done. Done is required. Any button can perform any of these actions if set to do so.

Caption: The default captions match the names of the 'Action' items. However, button captions may be changed to whatever is desired. Captions are limited to 27 characters and will word-wrap.

Visible: This check box turns the button on and off. If left unchecked, the button will not be displayed regardless of caption or action.
