Hi All,

I have the following JQuery code, whcih works fine for one button - but I cannot work out how to extend it to allow multiple buttons - with each button passing a paramter to the JQUERY so that that is can be added to the called url;

e.g.

<input id="button" name="button1" type="image" />  calls url: "update.php?Code=1",
<input id="button" name="button10" type="image" />  calls url: "update.php?Code=10",
<input id="button" name="button100" type="image" />  calls url: "update.php?Code=100",

etc etc

Any help, as always would be greatly appreciated. Each button

Regards

JamWales

ID attribute MUST BE unique.
You can't have ID="button" for all your buttons.

try this :
$("input[name^='button']").click(function(){
            if ( currentState == "on" ){
                  currentState = "off" ;
                  $(this).attr("src", "images/off.png");
            }
            else{
                  currentState = "on" ;
                  $(this).attr("src", "images/on.png");
            }
            dataString = "state=" + currentState ;
            $.ajax({
                     type: "POST",
                     url: "update.php",
                     data: dataString,
                     success: function(response) {
                           alert(response);
                     }
                     });                                                
                                                });
