The following script does not work:  If I grab the element by its Value it works, but it does not work when I grab it by the name.  Any Help?

$(document).ready(function() {

	$('input[type="button"]').click(function() {
		if ($(this).name() == "custom_1_yes") {
            $(this).text("Finish Customizing");
			$("#custom-hidden").toggle('slow');
		}

		if ($(this).name() == "custom_2_yes") {
            $(this).text("Finish Customizing");
			$("#custom-hidden-2").toggle('slow');
		}
  });

<input type="button" name="custom_1_yes" value="CUSTOMIZE NOW" />

What about :
$(document).ready(function() {

	$(':button[name^="custom_"]').click(function() {
			$(this).text("Finish Customizing");
			var x = $(this).attr("name").replace(/\D/g,"");
			x = x?"-"+x:"";
			$("#custom-hidden"+x).toggle('slow');
	});

});

Or :
$(document).ready(function() {

	$(':button[name^="custom_"]').click(function() {
			$(this).text("Finish Customizing");
			var toHide = "#" + $(this).data("hide");
			$(toHide).toggle('slow');
	});

});

<input type="button" name="custom_1_yes" value="CUSTOMIZE NOW" data-hide="custom-hidden" />
<input type="button" name="custom_2_yes" value="CUSTOMIZE NOW" data-hide="custom-hidden-2" />

@leakim971 I did the following and it works great.  However, when I click the button, the value on the button changes.  That is good.  However, when I click the button again, it does not go back to the original value.

$(':button[name^="custom_"]').click(function() {
			$(this).val("Finish Customizing");
			var x = $(this).attr("name").replace(/\D/g,"");
			x = x?"-"+x:"";
			$("#custom-hidden"+x).toggle('slow');
	});

Bad choice :)

why should it get the original value if you overwrite it?

$(':button[name^="custom_"]').click(function() {

var strFC = "Finish Customizing";
var bDECISION = $(this).data("original") != strFC; // true or false
var text = bDECISION?strFC:$(this).data("original");
var sShow = bDECISION?"block":"none";

			var x = $(this).attr("name").replace(/\D/g,"");
			x = x?"-"+x:"";
			$("#custom-hidden"+x).css("display", sShow);

	}).each(function() {

$(this).data("original", $(this).val());

});

Because when the div closes, I would like to see the original value.
