Hi,
My code snippet:
<a href="#" >edit</a>
<div class="entry">
...
<input type="button name="cancel">
</div>

Currently I have written the code to handle the current object and slidetoggle the div tag. but the same code is not working for onclick of cancel button because my code was like:
$(this).closest(div).siblings(div.entry).slidetoggle();

Can you give me some alternate solution to handle both scenarios

use a common class name for all the element, for example : myclass

so use :

$(".myclass").click(function() { // click event for example
       $(this).closest(div).siblings(div.entry).slidetoggle();
}) 

Open in new window

The issue here is
$(this).closest(div).siblings(div.entry).slidetoggle(); is not getting triggered while I click the cancel button because it is part of the div.

Is there any solution to handle that?

<div class="entry">

    <input type="button" name="cancel" value="cancel" class="myclass" />
</div>
