How can I have multiple jQuery button styles on one page?

Tags: javascript,jquery,css,jquery-ui

Problem :

I'm using the following external CSS files:

<link href="/jquery_custom/green/jquery-ui-1.8.16.custom.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<link href="/jquery_custom/css/blue/jquery-ui-1.8.7.custom.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" /></script>

And JavaScript:

<script language = "javascript" type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function () {

I have noticed on the jQuery UI site there is an Advanced option:

What do I need to do to have more than one style one the page? Including the two separate external ui-custom js files cause problems. And I notice Facebook has two different colored buttons:

How can this be done?

Solution :

You mean have different colors/styles for each button? You can do that with just CSS, like so:


a.button {
    color: #6e6e6e;
    font: bold 12px Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
    text-decoration: none;
    padding: 7px 12px;
    position: relative;
    display: inline-block;
    background: #f3f3f3;
    background: -webkit-gradient(linear,0% 40%,0% 70%,from(#F5F5F5),to(#F1F1F1));
    background: -moz-linear-gradient(linear,0% 40%,0% 70%,from(#F5F5F5),to(#F1F1F1));
    border: solid 1px #dcdcdc;
    border-radius: 2px;
    -webkit-border-radius: 2px;
    -moz-border-radius: 2px;
    margin-right: 10px;
} {
    background: red;
    background: -webkit-gradient(linear,0% 40%,0% 70%,from(#FF0000),to(#F1F1F1));
    background: -moz-linear-gradient(linear,0% 40%,0% 70%,from(#FF0000),to(#F1F1F1));
} {
    background: #7FFF24;
     background: -webkit-gradient(linear,0% 40%,0% 70%,from(#7FFF24),to(#F1F1F1));
     background: -moz-linear-gradient(linear,0% 40%,0% 70%,from(#7FFF24),to(#F1F1F1));


<a href="#" class="button">Gray Button</a>
<a href="#" class="button red">Red Button</a>
<a href="#" class="button green">Green Button</a>
