Result = ButtonGadget(#Gadget, x, y, Width, Height, Text$ [, Flags])
Create a button gadget in the current GadgetList.


#Gadget A number to identify the new gadget. #PB_Any can be used to auto-generate this number.
x, y, Width, Height The position and dimensions of the new gadget.
Text$ The text (HTML format) to display on the button.
Flags (optional) A combination (using the bitwise OR operator '|') of the following constants:
  #PB_Button_Right     : Aligns the button text at the right.
  #PB_Button_Left      : Aligns the button text at the left.
  #PB_Button_Default   : Makes the button look as if it is the default button in the window
  #PB_Button_MultiLine : If the text is too long, it will be displayed on several lines.
  #PB_Button_Toggle    : Creates a toggle button: one click pushes it, another will release it.

Return value
