Few Feature Requests on the Gradient Button Control


  1. It would be nice if it could render a hover gradient so that the button would mimic the hover appearance of a standard button.
  2. Also whenever you click on the button itself the text does not shift down to emulate that the button has been clicked. I think I can write some javascript for now to emulate the button click effect, but it would be nice if it was built right into the control.
  3. You have to set a width/height for every button. It would be nice if it could automatally detect the size of the button based on the text. This would also emulate the standard button behavior.

on #2 I just noticed that it only renders and Image. I believe another image will have to be generated to emulate the effect of a button click.

Another thing that would be nice to have an offset Left and Top attribute on the text. So I can specify how many units I want to offset the text from the center for example.
