i've got an in place edit text box for some of my fields. my model has
validates_presence_of for the field but nothing happens. it works fine
in the scaffold when using the edit page, but nowhere else.

anyone have a solution to this?

There was no reply to this question but it must be a common requirement.
Is
there a good solution?

How would one get a  validates_*** from the model to apply when using
in_place_edit_for?

The In_place_editor still uses the callbacks like before_update, so
maybe your could force your validation requirements to fire that way.

I've just created a custom in_place_edit that validates the model and
display the error message in javascript alert box.

Hey naga, I forgot to mention that you'll need to restart your mongrel
server. Did you do that?

Hi,
I restarted the server, but till i am not getting, later i added the
validates_presence_of :name  then it worked for me, I got the alert box
saying that it shouldn't be blank, so its working, but wen i try to edit
by not giving blank with another value, then also  its giving an alert
box that it shouldn't be blank, and am even not able to add a new one,
so wat should i do for this??

Naga, I'm not sure what went wrong though, it's a bit hard to know
without looking at the codes. Use firebug, check out the Ajax request
generated, put a print statement in your codes, look at the log files,
you probably would be able to see something helpful.

Hi,
  Thanks a lot, its working fine , i am sorry that i have given the
wrong column name for validates_presence_of  in the model,its good, and
every body liked that,
and i would ask u one more thing, is there any alert box custom code for
validating the Ajax form, like if i click a link an ajax form appears
and if i give a blank and submit its not taking the value in the
database but i should get an alert saying that it is blank,

Thanks in  Advance,
Harish

Looks like a nice piece of code ;) I'm rails newbie and have some
problems integrating it. I've created custom_in_place_editing.rb in my
lib/ and added include to my environment.rb, but I'm still getting
'uninitialized constant' error if I add
'in_place_edit_with_validation_for' to my controller. I did server
restart. Do you have any idea?

Thanks in advance,
Laurynas

Laurynas,

Please add append the following lines to custom_in_place_editing.rb, I
updated the code snippet yesterday to fix caching issue on Rails 1.2,
which causes the entry to be blank, after the error message alert. But I
forgot to copy a few lines below.

ActionController::Base.class_eval do
  include ActionController::Macros::CustomInPlaceEditing
end

Harris, I'm not sure what you meant though, sorry.

Maybe I replied too quickly :) Now I noticed, that I'm getting
"undefined method 'query_cache'" exception if validation fails. If I
comment out
"object.to_s.camelize.constantize.query_cache.clear_query_cache", I
get correct validator error message, but then blank value is shown.
That's on Rails 1.2.3.

Laurynas,

I forgot that I'm using RailsOnEdge. You are right, there's no
query_cache in rails 1.2.3. I've applied the patch to handle that.

Please re-copied the source codes from the same place:
http://www.pluitsolutions.com/2007/03/20/custom-in...

Sorry for the confusion, and thanks for reporting that.
