Calling javascript via "eval(request.resopnseText") help nee


#1

I have a link_to_remote method:

<%= link_to_remote image_tag(“clock_run.gif”, :border=>‘0’),
:update => @task.id,
:complete=>“eval(request.responseText);”,
:url => {:controller => ‘time_entries’,
:action => ‘punch_in’,
:id => @task} %>

The controller ultimately renders a partial:

render :partial => “partial/punch_out_link”

The partial renders fine, but I’m unable to call any of the javascript
methods inside the partial. Shouldn’t I be able to with the set up I
have? Maybe a better way, would be to ask, would someone show me a
simple example of how I could execute a simple pop up such as:
alert(‘test’);

thanks!
