My form_remote and link_remote tags seem to messing up and keep making
tag they are supposed to update, disappear completly. They'll fade out,
then start to fade in but then just dissappear. I think its happening
because both actions are firing at the same time on a fairly simple
For example, I have a link_to_remote tag:
<%= link_to_remote 'Edit', :url => {:action => 'edit', :id =>
:update => 'customer_detail'
:before => "new Effect.Fade('customer_detail')",
:complete => "new Effect.Appear('customer_detail')" %>

This doesn't work because it just makes the div tag not display. If I
the effects, then the tag is replaced just fine, but it would be nice to
able to keep this in there. I've tried it opera/mozilla/firefox and all
the same thing.

How do you folks handle this problem? Am I not using the right status

Thanks for the help!
