Changing a Control's Type

After capturing a control in your web application, you may wish to alter its appearance on mobile such that it looks like a different type of control. For example, you may wish to have a link appear as a button on mobile. You can leverage the Designer's ability to change control types to easily alter the control's mobile appearance.


To change the control type, click the pencil icon to open the ILE or open Style mode.
