I don't know if this is a ruby only question or a rails question. I
have a helper class that updates the view based on the info from the
div tag. This information is passed using the link_to_function. But it
doesn't work. I don't know how to access the page elements. Also, is
the if statement syntax correct for ruby? Thank you in advance for any

Is it if x1 == 'x1' or is it if x1 = 'x1'?

module VideosHelper
  def hide_and_reset(div, div2)
    update_page do |page|
      if page[div].title == 'show'
        page[div].title = 'hide'
       page[div].title = 'show'

<tr><td align="center">
<%= link_to_function image_tag("graphics/
select04.gif", :alt=>'Programming', :size=>'100x20', :border=>0),
hide_and_reset(:select02_div, :select01_div) %>
<div id="select02_div" title="1">
