Make 'Edit' button dynamic for dashboard

Hello,

I am creating a dashboard with several boxes of information.  Each box has an edit button.
Please see the attached swf file prototype.  I need the edit button to be dynamic. So when you click on item 1 and then click the edit button you see a pop up window with item 1 information and so on.  Please review this code in the tof-asp file.  Thanks for the help!
<script type="text/javascript">
// - jQuery onClick functions
$(document).ready(function(){
	//select Disaster Radio
	$('#tof_radio_1').click(function() {
		$.ajax({cache:'false',type:'post',url:'includes/ajaxhandler.asp?huboption=1'});
		//change the url for Edit and New based on which radio button is checked
		//$('#editURLbox1').attr({'href':'disaster_entry.asp','title':'Edit Disaster Entry'});
		//$('#newURLbox1').attr({'href':'disaster_entry2.asp','title':'Create a New Disaster Entry'});
		$('#hubList').load('includes/ajaxhandler.asp?huboption=1');
		$('input[@name=tof_radio]:checked').val();
	return false;
	});
	
		$('#hubDis li').click(function() {
			var disId= $(this).attr('rel');
		$('#editURLbox1').attr({'href':'update_disaster_entry.asp?edit='+disId,'title':'Edit Disaster Entry'});
		$('#newURLbox1').attr({'href':'disaster_entry2.asp','title':'Create a New Disaster Entry'});
		});

Here is a simplified example I made http://jsbin.com/iGEfapiC/1/edit?html,css,js,output with the code below.

First we hide the divs (or in your case pop ups) with css.  Then we do a click function and grab the id of the button.  If the 2nd is clicked, we have "btn2".  Next we grab the rightmost character so we now have "2".  Just in case something is open, close all the divs with the class pop.  Now show the div with the id "pop" and the number we extracted.

There are many ways to do this same thing that will all give a similar result.

What I typically do in a case like this is do my ajax call and place it in just one modal or div.  Only the content changes inside the modal based on the ajax response.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.js"></script>
<meta charset=utf-8 />
<title>padas</title>
</head>
<body>
  <button id="btn1" class="btn">button 1</button>
   <button id="btn2" class="btn">button 2</button>
   <button id="btn3" class="btn">button 3</button>
  <div id="pop1" class="pop">One</div>
  <div id="pop2" class="pop">two</div>
  <div id="pop3" class="pop">three</div>
  
</body>
</html>

Open in new window

$('.btn').click(function(){
  var btn=$(this).attr('id');
  var num = btn.substr(3);
     
  $('.pop').hide();
  $('#pop'+num).show();
  
});

Open in new window

.pop{display:none;}
