I use jQuery and have these two buttons.

<a id="backToCaseStudyListButton" data-icon="back"  data-transition="slide" data-direction="reverse" rel="external">Testing</a>

Open in new window


and

						 <label for="options-menu" class="select"></label>
						 	<select name="options-menu" data-native-menu="false" id="options-menu"  data-theme="b" class="ui-btn-right" data-inline="true" data-icon="gear">
								<option value="None" id="options-menu-none">Options</option>
								<option value="reset" id="options-menu-reset">Reset to default</option>
								<option value="hide" id="options-menu-hide">Hide legend</option>					
							</select>

Open in new window


I want to put them after each other up in the right hand corner. How do I do that? When I do it like it is now, they end up on top of each other.

I looked here, but don't get it together:

I use <ul> element to accomplish this.
See it in action here: http://jsfiddle.net/hjchZ/
HTML
<ul class="buttons-topright">
    <li><input type="button" value="button 1" /></li>
    <li><select><option>aksjdhajks</option></select></li>
    <li><input type="button" value="button 2" /></li>
</ul>

Open in new window

CSS
ul.buttons-topright{
    list-style-type: none;
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    
    display: block;
    position: absolute;
    top: 0;
    right: 0;
}
ul.buttons-topright li {
    float: left;
}

Open in new window

you can have as many <li> as you want, and inside each one you can have whatever you want.

Could you write that out exactly as it should be with my buttons and with what parameters left? I don't seem to get it to work.

I didn't write with your code because I couldn't see any buttons there...

Your fist code section, that you say it's 2 buttons, it's actually only a <a> element.
I guess there's something missing there...

Ok, I think you are right. It looks like a button on the screen though. Is it possible to treat it like a button and make it stay up in the right corner with the other button??

So the list for your code should be:
<ul class="buttons-topright">
    <li><a id="backToCaseStudyListButton" data-icon="back" data-transition="slide" data-direction="reverse" rel="external">Testing</a>
    </li>
    <li>
        <label for="options-menu" class="select"></label>
        <select name="options-menu" data-native-menu="false" id="options-menu" data-theme="b" class="ui-btn-right" data-inline="true" data-icon="gear">
            <option value="None" id="options-menu-none">Options</option>
            <option value="reset" id="options-menu-reset">Reset to default</option>
            <option value="hide" id="options-menu-hide">Hide legend</option>
        </select>
    </li>
</ul>

Open in new window


Like I told you, you need to add a <li> in the list per item and add the content there.

And don't forget the CSS

Well, didn't really get it to work in this way, but solved it in another way.

I don't know how you did it but for these kind of things, using ul / li lists is the best option.
