Is there a way to render a file from within Rails app so it is displayed in a new browser tab/window?? I have an auto_complete field where users can enter letters to search for last name. If some sort of database error occurs while entering data in this field, the error is captured but the html file that should be displayed (a generic error page) is not being rendered in the browser. I can see the render command being issued in the Mongrel console window... And in the current view in the browser, some of the fields shift to the right. So it's like the browser is trying to render something directly within the page. Thought it might be worth trying to render the error page to a new tab to see if that would work. Unless anyone has seen a similar problem, and knows how to capture errors and display error page when using an auto_complete field??
