Custom Buttons on Modal Pages

There are lots of good reasons to use modal pages and components in PeopleSoft. However, one thing you sacrifice is control, especially if you use the delivered Save and Cancel buttons that PeopleTools adds to your pages. There is nothing to stop you from adding your own buttons to the pages, but if you do the delivered buttons are still there, perhaps confusing the user. At least for the modal component, there is a solution. I tried disabling the toolbar in the component internet properties, but the buttons were still there.

Then a co-worker (thanks Giri) pointed out that if you actually uncheck the Save and Cancel checkboxes, the buttons are not shown. Wow. He's right. Problem solved. Is this a bug? Probably. Btw, we use PeopleTools 8.49.
