Colors for in_place_editor

Does anyone know how to change the highlight and fade-to color of the
AJAX in_place_editor and in_place_editor_field? Amazingly enough, the
Rails code seems to assume that we always want yellow highlights and
fade-to-white.

Thanks for the quick reply. (1) is obviously the better way, so I’ll
stick to that. It is somewhat surprising, though, that Rails assumes
every web application has a white background… How 2.0. :wink:

Unfortunately, you are out of lack if you are looking for a clean way
to do it. The in_place_editor helper doesn’t support all the options
of Ajax.InPlaceEditor[1]

You could do one of two things.

  1. You could monkeypatch lib/actionview/
    java_script_macros_helper.rb#in_place_editor to support more options.
    Stick this snippet of code[2] in your application.rb, Then you can
    call in_place_editor like this:

<%= in_place_editor_field :post, ‘title’, {}, {:highlight_color =>
#FF0000’, :highlight_end_color => ‘#BB00FF’ }

  1. You could change your local copy of script.aculo.us in ‘public/
    javascrips/control.js#Ajax.InPlaceEditor.defaultHighlightColor’ and
    all related default values in where InPlaceEditor is defined.

Keeping in mind that InPlaceEditor is going to become a plugin in
Rails 2.0, I would think it will eventually see some improvements on
that area.
