    Dialog Button Text Problem

    Hi all

    I am probably missing something simple here, I am using jQuery Dialog and I am trying to pass the Button text to the dialog function in the following manner:

    Code JavaScript:
    <script type="text/javascript">
        function showDialog($url, $title, $form_id, $buttontext) 
                modal: true,
                open: function ()
                height: 500,
                width: 700,
                title: $title,
                buttons: {
                    $buttontext: function() {
                        $( this ).dialog( "close" );
                    Cancel: function() {
                        $( this ).dialog( "close" );

    And I am passing the following:

    Code HTML4Strict:
    <a href="#" onclick="showDialog('templates/dialogs/dialog.editcheckpoint.php', 'Edit Checkpoint', '#editcheckpoint', 'Update Checkpoint');\">Edit</a>

    This works all apart from the button text which remains as $buttontext where it should be 'Update Checkpoint'

    I am sure I am missing something obvious or doing something stupid! I use the same Dialog function for a number of different tasks in the interface so want to customize the button text as I do with the title etc.

    Thanks for any help
