I've been searching on how to find a button (button tags) using only it's value.


Open in new window

This code doesn't seem to work (getAlignment function is correct as I checked it thourgh debugger). Doesn't input recognize button tags?

Is it an input, or is it a button? There are two ways to create a button in HTML (well, technically 3 if you count a submit button):

<input type="button"></input>

Open in new window

So which are you using? A JQuery of $('input') will not find a <button> tag.

Then swap "input" for "button" in your JQuery.
