Hi all,

I have a a really, really dumb Newb question...  I am trying to use
observe_form to use AJAX calls in order to refresh a particular page
fragment using the form data.

I have run into a stumbling block very early on in the process - how can
provide an 'id' attribute to the form_remote_tag or start_form_tag
Specifying something like :id => 'myForm' doesn't appear to add an ID
attribute in the generated HTML.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You need to separate the html id => ... part into its own
html_options hash:

   <%= start_form_tag({ :action => "edit", :id => @article }, {:id =>
"article_form", :enctype => "multipart/form-data"}) %>

use a hidden fields to add additional parameters. these are not
displayed to the user.

     <%= hidden_field_tag "formid", "myForm" %>
