Button: Provide an "activate" event/callback

It would be nice if the button widget provides a method "activate", which executes the code bound to the click event and changes the classes in case of a buttonset (radios).

As it is now, i have to trigger the change event on triggered click.

Example HTML:

<div id="toolbarOpenLayers">
    <input type="radio" id="btnSelectFeature" name="toolbarOpenLayersItem" checked="checked" /><label for="btnSelectFeature">Button1</label>
    <input type="radio" id="btnRoutingStart" name="toolbarOpenLayersItem" /><label for="btnRoutingStart">Button2</label>
    <input type="radio" id="btnRoutingEnd" name="toolbarOpenLayersItem" /><label for="btnRoutingEnd">Button3</label>
    <input type="radio" id="btnRoutingEdit" name="toolbarOpenLayersItem" /><label for="btnRoutingEdit">Button4</label>
    <input type="radio" id="btnHelp" name="toolbarOpenLayersItem" /><label for="btnHelp">Button5</label>

Example JavaScript:

jQuery('#btnSelectFeature').bind('click', function() { jQuery(this).attr('checked', true).trigger('change'); doSomethingElse(); } );
jQuery('#btnRoutingStart').bind('click', function() { jQuery(this).attr('checked', true).trigger('change'); doSomethingElse(); } );
jQuery('#btnRoutingEnd').bind('click', function() { jQuery(this).attr('checked', true).trigger('change'); doSomethingElse(); } );
jQuery('#btnRoutingEdit').bind('click', function() { jQuery(this).attr('checked', true).trigger('change'); doSomethingElse(); } );
jQuery('#btnHelp').bind('click', function() { doSomethingElse(); } );

We've discussed adding an event to Button, instead of triggering a fake/native click event on the original element, which we currently do. Not sure if that is covered somewhere, leaving this open for now.

Can you explain what you're currently doing and what problems you're facing? It's not clear exactly what you're asking for.

Hi Peter, a bit of time has passed, but I believe that I used this method to execute javascript when a checkbox/radio button was activated. It would be nice if there would be a native method, such as "activate" for it.

Are you trying to have "activate" event per button or an "activate" event that is called on the buttonset for when any of the buttons inside of it are clicked? I don't know that we gain much, either you are binding a click event on the button or you are binding on the "activate" event, don't see the value gained. Also when does the "activate" event get triggered, on click? What about buttons the are toggle buttons?

Also when does the "activate" event get triggered, on click?

checkbox/radio buttons can be activated and deactivated, the method "activate" should be triggered when the button is checked.

This is still confusing. Events are triggered, not methods. Can you perhaps provide an example of what you would want your code to look like if the API was implemented?
