I am trying to implement in_place_field_editor into my UI in a limited
but useful way.

I want to use in_place_field_editor within a partial that is called
from a view as shown here:

    <%= render :partial => "shared/property",
               :collection => @properties,
               :locals => {:member_entity => @logged_in_member_entity}

Within the "property" partial, I use the "property" local variable
(current entry of the :collection).

I should like to use in_place_field_editor to edit the name attribute
of "property" as shown here:

          <%= in_place_editor_field :property, :name, {},
{:external_control => "rename_name_#{}", :save_text =>
"update" } %>

To get this to work I must  first do  <% @property = property %>

Is it possible to avoid this last statement and just to refer to the
local variable "property" within the in_place_editor_field call?

No, not without hacking the in_place_editor.
