I remember seeing such a technique in a blog/article/book but am unable to find it. It essentially used a hidden div which contained the form which was visible only during editing. any pointers ?

Are you looking for something like this?: http://24ways.org/2005/edit-in-place-with-ajax I found script.aculo.us has this built in (which is in Ruby on Rails): http://wiki.script.aculo.us/scriptaculous/show/Aja... I also found this for prototype (also built in to Ruby on Rails): http://joseph.randomnetworks.com/archives/2006/04/... Hopefully, one of these will help. Mike

Thanks Mike ... all of those resources talk about in-place editing for just one field at a time. What I am looking for is a dynamic form that follows the same principle but for a group of fields at a time. So instead of having to save each individual field, the user can edit multiple fields and hit save just once.

I did find someone who asked about the same functionality in November 2006, but the reply was that the edit in place script would have to be re-worked. Sorry I couldn't help. Mike

what about form_remote_for or form_remote_tag? http://api.rubyonrails.com/classes/ActionView/Help... http://api.rubyonrails.com/classes/ActionView/Help...

What I do in this case is create the form_remote_for inside a hidden div (style="display:none") then toggle that hidden div with something like: link_to_function('edit', visual_effect(:toggle_appear, 'the_hidden_form_div')) If you want to be able to click on multiple fields and edit them all, you could do something like this: <div id="fields" onclick="$('fields').hide();$('edit').show()"> Field 1: <%= @model.name %><br /> Field 2: <%= @model.description %> </div> <div id="edit" style="display:none"> <% form_remote_for :model..... do |f| %> <%= f.text_field, :name %><br /> <%= f.text_area, :description %><br /> <%= submit_tag 'Save' %> <%= link_to_function 'Cancel', "$('edit').hide();$ ('fields').show()" $> <% end %> </div> I usually put something like the above into a partial, then use RJS to reload that partial after the remote save. Hope this helps. -=nathan

If not then first work right through a good tutorial such as railstutorial.org (which is free to use online). That should show you the basics of rails. Colin
