Can't get simple link_to_remote to work

AFAICT, this is all I need to do to get a simple example working:

the should have this:

<%= javascript_include_tag :defaults %>

My test page view should have a div with an id and the ERB like this:

<%= link_to_remote ‘Click Me’,
:url => {:action => ‘show_time’,
:update => ‘time_box’} %>

<div id="time_box"></div>

The controller for my test page should have this:

def show_time
layout false
render_text "Time: " + DateTime.now.to_s
end

I know there’s various options for several of the details in there, but
shouldn’t this example work as is?

However, I get no response from this code.

What am I missing?

ACK, found it – the } was in the wrong spot.

Now to get a view template to be used for the response. I thought one
would just automatically get used, but apparently not?

Oi. sorry. ignore that.

Greg,

Glad to see you got this working! I used to encounter the same types
of things… weird errors that turned out to be obscure syntactic
mistakes (like a wrongly placed or missing } in your example).

In these cases, the API docs are indispensible… to know when you need
a hash or a hash of hashes, or stuff like that.
