How would go about to update multiple components when using link_to_remote? I've got a button that lets you switch between languages and it has to update every component in my application (like, let's say: the main screen, the top navigation bar and the search bar). Each component is created in a different DIV and whenever the language is switched, the entire application should reflect the change. Using update_element_function is pretty much out of the equation because I can't specify a controller/action for content (instead of *ugh* just plain html). Same goes for using rjs.

for something like that you should not be using submit_to_remote. It's going to be much easier to just use a normal submit and post-back and do a redirect_to that will refresh the entire app.

Using rjs is easier to update multiple dom response to each ajax request.you can do sth like this: render :update do |page| dom_partials_map.each do |domdiv,partialtemplate| page.replace_html domdiv, :partial=>partialtemplate end end Heist wrote: > How would go about to update multiple components when using > link_to_remote?
