JQuery suggestions for dynamic buttons in Modal Window

Hi,
I have a standard for with standard HTML submit buttons etc.
When the page is loaded as a standalone page then showing these buttons is fine. I have made the script so only the form is loaded into a modal window, without the rest. In the modal  window the buttons are set using Jquery parameters.
What I would like to be able to do is load any form using the same script, but where it finds a html button in the form it replaces it with a modal window button and if its a submit button then it should submit when clicked. It should also hide the html buttons that its replacing.

The reason why I am trying to achieve this, is so I can re-use the same javascript to open any forms that are requested, rather than creating a function for each form and having to set up the buttons for each one.

Cheers
John

var formButtons = {};
$("#formtoload input[type=button]").each(function() {
   $currentButton = $(this);
   $currentButton.hide();
   formButtons = $.extend({
      $currentButton.value() : function(event, ui) {                   
                                      $currentButton.click();
                                            }
                                       }, formButtons ||{});
});

// add a default close button since the form did not have one previously.
formButtons = $.extend({
"Close": function(event, ui) {
                  $(this).dialog('destroy').remove();
            }
      }, formButtons ||{});

// now show the dialog with formButtons passed in to

you can then do something like
$('#formtoload').dialog({
            title: $('#formtoload').attr("title"),
            modal: true,
            position: 'top',
            close: function(event, ui) { $(this).dialog('destroy').remove(); },
            buttons: formButtons
      });
