Hello,

If I have the following button in my page

<input type="button" class="btn" value="Find"  />

This button is loaded from a 3rd party application and does not have an id.
If it did have an id (e.g. "testb") I could use something like the following to find my button and set it's background image

$('[id$="testb"]').css("background-image", "url(http:www.mytest.com/myTest.jpg)");

However my button will never have an id and there is also the possibility that more than one button on the page therefore I can't search by class or type.

Can I search using the value"Find" as this will be unique?

Thanks in advance.
