PHP Question

Identity of the clicked id

i am using php codeigniter. I am sending data in an array to my view. In my view i have a foreach loop in place which iterates through the array and displays the data in my view. Also inside this foreach loop i am displaying some action buttons.

foreach($studentList as $r)
echo '<tr>';
echo $r->id;
echo '</tr>'?>
<a class="lock" data-id="<?= $r->id?>_lock" data-placement="top" data-original-title="Lock Profile" href="javascript:void(0)"><i class="clip-locked"></i></a>
<a class="hidden unlock" data-id="<?= $r->id?>_unlock" data-placement="top" data-original-title="Unlock Profile" href="javascript:void(0)"><i class="clip-unlocked"></i></a>
} ?>

What i want to do is to display the lock button by default, when someone clicks on this button lock should get hidden and unlock button should get displayed. in my jquery i am doing it like this but clicking on single button accounts for changing the buttons on the whole page.
I know the reason as i am accessing the element using class which all of them have common but i haven't yet figured out how to do that using id which will account for single elements.

$('.unlock').click(function() {
var id = $(this).attr("data-id");


This slight modification should help you.

        var id = $(this).attr("data-id").split('_')[0];
