Can't get rjs templates running!

Hi all,

I’m using rails version 1.2.3, and I have a really weird problem:
I’m trying to run a simple example for experimenting with rjs, that
adds some xhtml to my page, actually it’s the example on
http://www.codyfauser.com/articles/2005/11/20/rails-rjs-templates.

The weird thing is that if I use an rjs my browser doesn’t update, but
if I us the “render :update do |page|” way it does.

I’m using FireBug on Firefox, and actually both ways respond the same
javascript, but one is executed yet not the other.

What may I be doing wrong?

I leave you part of the code I’m using:

#test.rhtml

Test <%= javascript_include_tag :defaults %>
<h1 id='header'>RJS Template Test</h1>
<ul id='list'>
  <li>Dog</li>
  <li>Cat</li>
  <li>Mouse</li>
</ul>
<%= link_to_remote("Add a fox",
      :url =>{ :action => :add }) %>

#test_controller.rb

class TestController < ApplicationController

def test
end

def add

render :update do |page|

page.insert_html :bottom, ‘list’, content_tag(“li”, “Fox”)

page.visual_effect :highlight, ‘list’, :duration => 3

page.replace_html ‘header’, ‘RJS Template Test Complete!’

end

end

end

#add.rjs

page.insert_html :bottom, ‘list’, content_tag(“li”, “Fox”)
page.visual_effect :highlight, ‘list’, :duration => 3
page.replace_html ‘header’, ‘RJS Template Test Complete!’

#response in both ways
try {
new Insertion.Bottom(“list”, “

  • Fox
  • ”);
    new Effect.Highlight(“list”,{duration:3});
    Element.update(“header”, “RJS Template Test Complete!”);
    } catch (e) { alert(‘RJS error:\n\n’ + e.toString()); alert('new
    Insertion.Bottom(“list”, "
  • Fox
  • \");\nnew Effect.Highlight(\"list\",{duration:3}); \nElement.update(\"header\", \"RJS Template Test Complete!\");'); throw e }

    Notice that the add action is commented, when I uncomment it, it works
    fine.

    Any ideas on what’s the problem?

    Thanks a lot in advance
