The dialog buttons should have ids

It is almost impossible to test jQuery dialogs with most of the browser test tools, because dialog buttons can't have IDs. Even automatically generated IDs (with a numbering) would help.

The decision is: don't use jQuery dialogs or don't test your software.

I think that testing is important ;)

How are you going to reference buttons by id if the ids are auto-generated with an unpredictable number? Are you not able to reference buttons by position, e.g., .ui-dialog-buttonpane button:first?

I'm in agreement with Scott G. I've used exactly that method to examine and test dialog functionality. I propose the priority be changed to minor.

I moved this suggestion into #4344 which covers the overall redesign of button flexibility.
