How to create custom Selection Type for exposed filters

Hello all,

We are trying to find the best way to make a different selection type for exposed filters. Currently appear to only have Dropdown and Autocomplete, but we need a row of buttons for each option instead of a textbox or dropdown menu.

Can anyone point us in the right direction? I took a look at better exposed filters but it doesn't give us what we need.

I also looked at Webforms but I'm not sure that quite meets the requirements either.

Thanks so much,

I am trying to upload audio files to Drupal nodes. The audio files are in the format 1-1.mp3, 1-2.mp3 and so and these files are saved in an array $uploaded_files.

Could you please let me know how can I do this?
