Currently, I have a link_to_remote like this:

<%= link_to_remote("Get Results",
                  :update => 'query_results',
                  :with => "'tags=' + $F('query_tags')",
                  :loading => "new Effect.Appear('comment_loading')",
                  :complete => "Element.hide('comment_loading')",
                  :url => { :action => :get_results })

Can I have more than one callback for :loading and :complete?  That is,
using this syntax, can I make more than one element appear and hide when
get_results is executing?  If so, how might I edit this code?

Hi Terry.

Have you tried separating javascript statements in the loading and
parameters with semicolons?

e.g. :loading => "new Effect.Appear('comment_loading'); new

Yup - thanks Dan!  I figured that out on my own about 10 minutes after
sending the email.  Felt like a noob for asking, but for someone who
know much javascript it wasn't blindingly obvious.

Thanks again!
