          Here is a sample page that uses buttons. There are some built in CSS elements on the asl.css.


          I also just did a webinar on this subject. Check it out here. It has some links to resources like the Developers Guide.

              Dear Robert,


              Thank you very much for the response.

              I am totally confused to develop my first application.

              Its mentioned somewhere that asl.css and asl.js are inside the device but i guess they are not visible when i connect the device using USB.

              (asl.js with the sample code which i got but not asl.css) request you to please add these files in this thread..


              Now  i just copied the above code in my app and executed the file.. i expected there should be some button in the UI but instead it displays some numbers on the screen. (pl help me i just need two text fields (which i am already done and a login button.. ) i have my code in the server to authenticate the user.


              And one more major major thing which i am not able to fix ..id i add any png blackwhite file in the project and mention the path in the apps.json.. i am not able to view that icon..


              only the demo file which is supplied as part of the samle program is working.


              Could you please help in this regard?


              Thank you,
