[thelist] asp.net: using a form button as a link

	Do you just want it to act exactly like a link?  If that's the
case, why not use a regular HTML button?

<input type="button" value="Get File" 
 onClick="window.location.href='somefile.pdf';" />

(you can even add a runat="server" if you like)

	Of course if you want it to post back to the server and initiate
some kind of streaming action there, that's another story.

I've got a pdf file users may want to download.  How does one format a
form button to download the file?

<asp:button text="Download" onclick="??" runat="server"/>
