The "BUTTON TEXT" command allows you to change the title of the button programmatically:

BUTTON TEXT ({*; }object; newTitle)

The command takes either the object name or variable name of the button and the new title as parameters, for example:

BUTTON TEXT (bDelete;" Delete")

In this example the label on the bDelete button would be set to " Delete".
