Custom buttons in tab view

I have created a custom object. The tab view (all records) list comes with three system assigned buttons:

- New $object

- Change owner

- Refresh.

 

I want to add another custom button for multi-record delete, as mass delete works only with standard objects.

When editing the page layout, it only allows modifying the displayed fields, but no custom buttons.

 

Where would I find the definition of the buttons that are being displayed?

Can I add a custom 'delete' button?

 

      Thanks,

Setup > App Setup > Create > Objects > Click your custom Object > Custom Button and Links > Here you can create List Button which will be displayed on the tab view.

 

Make sure you check "Display Checkboxes (for Multi-Record Selection)" to operate the action on all records selected.

 

Again go to Setup > App Setup > Create > Objects > Click your custom Object  > Search Layouts and edit the List View and add your new button.
