How can I get mt RJS template to accept a variable as the ID value?

Doing this works:
page.replace_html '1', "some text..."

This does not:

page.replace_html @employee.id, "some text..."

Looked and searched but little documentation at the mo especially in
RDocs.

Not sure, since I didn't test this, but may this be a class mismatch
error? Can you try adding .to_s to your variable?

They are ordinary views

lets assume you have @employee in your action then you can use @employee
in your rjs

#Controller
def show
   @user = User.find(params[:id])
end


#show.rjs
page.replace_html "user_#{@user.id}", "You know where to find me"
