Button Disabled property is now the DisplayMode property?

I noticed that the Disabled property of my buttons (and many other controls) has now been morphed into a DisplayMode property.

This property can take at least three values (Disabled, View, Edit)

What is the difference between View and Edit modes for a button?  It is not as if the user can edit the button, or can they?

Thanks for any insight.

The main difference between the Edit and View modes is that in the former the users can interact with the control, while in the latter they can't - but the control will not "look disabled". For the specific example of a button, the OnSelect handler will not be called if the display mode of the button is View, but it will be if it's Edit.

Thanks both for replying. Documentation could be clearer for the case of non-editable controls.
In any case this is a great new feature!
