lets say i have 7 buttons that are li tags but when a tab is selected the class becomes current how would i disable all the other buttons on click to return false.


<ul>
<li><a href="#" class="current"></a></li>
<li><a href="#"></a></li>
<li><a href="#"></a></li>
</ul>

Yes this would disable all LI elements that do not have the class "current"
$('li').not(".current").attr('disabled', 'disabled');
