Here is my working java script for a single JQuery dialog button:
 $.fx.speeds._default = 800;
    $(function  thedialog() {
        $("#myDialog").dialog({

            autoOpen: false,
            show: 'slide',
            hide: 'explode',
            modal: false,
            width: 300,
            minHeight: 200,
            maxHeight: 500,
            buttons: {
                "Close": function () {
                    $(this).dialog("close");
                }
            }
        });

        $("#opener").click(function (e) {
            e.preventDefault();
            $("#myDialog").dialog("open").effect("highlight", {}, 2000);
            ;
            return false;
        });

        function positionDialog() {
            linkOffset = $("#opener").position();
            linkWidth = $("#opener").width();
            linkHeight = $("#opener").height();
            scrolltop = $(window).scrollTop();
            $("#myDialog").dialog("option", "position", [(linkOffset.left - 200 / 2) + linkWidth / 2, linkOffset.top + linkHeight - scrolltop]);
        }

        positionDialog();

        $(window).resize(function () {
            positionDialog();
        });

        $(window).scroll(function () {
            positionDialog();
        });
    });
</script>

Open in new window


In my HTML I use this:
<div id="myDialog" title="Dialog1">
<p>hello world</p>
  </div>
                <input type="image" name="opener" id="opener"  onmouseover="mouseOver()" onmouseout="mouseOut()" src="images/learnmore.png" onclick="return false;" />

Now I want to make another button (up to 10 more), but using the same ID for a button does not work.  If I change my second Button ID, then my script doesn't work.  If I use class="opener" for a second button, that doesn't work.  

 Any ideas on how to get multiple dialog's working on the same page, using image buttons?

This might help you.

Passing individual button to open pop up.
onclick="openPopUp(this); return false;"

<input type="image" name="opener" id="opener"  onmouseover="mouseOver()" onmouseout="mouseOut()" src="images/learnmore.png" onclick="openPopUp(this); return false;" /> 


 var thisButton;
        function openPopUp(button) {
            thisButton = $(openPopUp);
            positionDialog(thisButton);
            //e.preventDefault();
            $("#myDialog").dialog("open").effect("highlight", {}, 2000);
            return false;
        }

        function positionDialog(button) {
            linkOffset = button.position();
            linkWidth = button.width();
            linkHeight = button.height();
            scrolltop = $(window).scrollTop();
            $("#myDialog").dialog("option", "position", [(linkOffset.left - 200 / 2) + linkWidth / 2, linkOffset.top + linkHeight - scrolltop]);
        }

        positionDialog(thisButton);

        $(window).resize(function() {
            positionDialog(thisButton);
        });

        $(window).scroll(function() {
            positionDialog(thisButton);
        });
