I have a button defined called myButton. I created this:

$("myButton").click( function (e) {
   alert("button clicked");
});

What's wrong?

ID attribute? <input id="myButton" type="button">
$("[b]#[/b]myButton").click( function (e) {
   alert("button clicked");
});

Open in new window


Name attribute? <input name="myButton" type="button">
$(":button[name='myButton']").click( function (e) {
   alert("button clicked");
});

Open in new window
