You can change the text displayed on your button through the command:
app."name of your button".Text="newName"

Yes, I have the same problem. Not sure what to do.
"If I put this command at the starting of code it changes(app.CalculateButton.Text = "Calculating.." ); but when I put (app.CalculateButton.Text = "Calculate") at the end to revert it back to orignal it doesnt change to "Calculating...""
