AJAX and select form help


#1

Hi all,

Trying a different approach here. I’ve got a select box on the
_form.rhtml
(for ‘new’) like so:

<%= select(:schedule, :start_date, @dates) %>

When that date changes, I need it to pass the selected value to the
get_dates
controller function (of the Schedule class), that looks like so:

def get_slots(date)
@slots = Schedule.get_available_slots(date)
end

Then I need another select box updated on the same (_form.rhtml) page:

<%= select(:schedule, :slot_number, @slots) %>

This can be in a partial if necessary.

How do I do this with with AJAX? I’ve tried following the examples, but
I’m
not doing so well.

Thanks,

Dan
