Forms nearly always need a way to submit them; the default is a submit button

(other methods are to use , and in some
forms an onchange attribute of a form field will
work too)

Forms that edit messages are given a button by
Manila, which is why you do not have to think
about this when you make message form Manila
ETP. Its the most common case, so it is made as
easy a sposisble.

But when you create your own forms, if
addedValues notices you have no way to submit the
form - making it useless - it reminds you by
puttign a button at the bottom.

If you want to determine where the button goes
and its name, add the input statement above to
the form layout.
