How to Create a Custom Button in PHP


The PHP programming language lets you dynamically create HTML code, so you can set up buttons, images, forms and layouts based on user input. You can dynamically display a customized button using the PHP "echo" command. The echo command prints the HTML to the Web page. You set up the button HTML in a PHP string and display it to the user using the "echo" command.

  • Right-click the PHP file you want to edit and select "Open With." Click the PHP editor you prefer to use and click "Open" to open the file code.

  • Create the PHP customized button. You must include the button HTML, button name and the value shown to the user. The following code creates a button named "php_button" and assigns it to the "$button" variable:

    $button = "<input type='button' id='php_button' value='Click Me'>";

  • Display the button on the page using the "echo" command. The following code prints out the button to your Web page:

    echo $button;

  • Save the changes and run the new code in your PHP debugger. You must upload the page to your host provider for the changes to take effect on the website.
