Reading which button is clicked from a group of buttons .

We can have a group of buttons with different ID and same class. We will execute a common code when any one of the button is clicked. This common code will display the id of the button which is clicked.

<button  id=new_one1 class=my_button>My Button 1</button> <button  id=new_one2 class=my_button>My Button 2</button> <button  id=new_one3 class=my_button>My Button 3</button>

<script> $(document).ready(function() { $(".my_button").click(function(){ var; alert('Hi , you clicked one of the button with id= ' + str); }) }) </script>

Enable or disable a button

We can enable or disable any button by changing its prop attribute like this.

Source code is here
<button id=b1>Disable Button</button>
<button id=b2>Enable Button</button>

<button id=b3>My Button</button>
$(document).ready(function() {




Reading the status of the button

We can read the status of the button ( disabled or enabled ) by using .prop
Here is the code.
alert($('#b3' ).prop( 'disabled' ));
Above code will return true or false based on the status of the button.

Application using button

One button can be used to send the user entered text from a textarea. This button will remain in disable state till the user completes entering some minimum number of text inside the textarea.

    How to create button in html/javascript/php which is appeared since 11:00am to 11:59pm everyday.


    You can use timer to read the time periodically and then manage to display or hide button. It is better to read clock from server side and set the duration as client clock can be changed.
    Trigger the reading of server clock by a timer and once it is 11.00 AM then show the button, hide the same after 59 minutes.

    Read the JavaScript clock and timer uses here JavaScript timer

    Read the how the server time can be collected
