Hi,

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I have the following code in my page:

<h3>Filter By</h3>

@for (int n = 1; n < 4; n++)
 {

<div class="control-group">
<div class="control-label">

 <div class="input-append">
    <select class="clause-selector gen-clauses">
            <option value="">@Translations.lang.select</option>
    </select>
        <button id="alpha-list" class="btn clause-list" type="button">
            <i class="icon-list"></i>
        </button>
        <button id="grouped-list" style="display:none" class="btn clause-list" type="button">
            <i class="icon-cat"></i>
        </button>
 </div>

</div>
</div>

}
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


the two buttons toggle using the following JQUERY code:

    $('.clause-list').on("click", function (event) {
        var other = $(this).siblings('.clause-list').first();
        buildSearchClauses($(this).prevAll('.clause-selector').first(), (this.id !== 'alpha-list'));
        $(this).hide();
        other.show();
    });

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Now I want to write a JQUERY statement to get the Button selected by the user at the moment. Then I want to use it to do some action (Something like this):

function PerformActionOnButtonStatus()
{
     $('select.gen-clauses').each(function (key, sel)
    {    
     var selectedStatus = $(this).children('button').filter("button:selected").text();  //Can you help
     var sel = Selected Button object;  //Can you help
     
     if(selectedStatus = 'grouped')   //Grouped means that I selected button with id="alpha-list"
         { CallFunction1(sel, true); }
    else
         { CallFunction1(sel, false); }

    }
}

Buttons don't have a selected state on their own. You'll need to set a property on them (or add a class to them) within your JS code when one is clicked (and change the value of that property for all others).

Why does your new code not contain any event handlers?

It is a CSHTML and I am not very familiar with that.
I am just modifying some code done earlier.

But this works right:
        $(this).hide();
        other.show();

So, what do I need to add to the buttons to make sure I can read their selected state?
