How to detect current element id in jQuery

0 votes

I have some HTML codes:

<input type="button" id="btn1" class="myButton" value="Button 1"/>
<input type="button" id="btn2" class="myButton" value="Button 2"/>

I need to run a jQuery function whenever user click each button, and I have to do it using their class.

$('.myButton').click(function() {
   // do something
});

But what I should to do, depends on the current element Id.

My question is that how can I detect which element called this function? I need to know its id.
