I have an application, where i.e., I can go to the users controllers,
and they manage all the basic actions by rest, like creating, modifying,
updating and deleting records.
Now, I want to reuse that code, from another part in the web page, so I
can list the users on that other controller, and if I press on add, I
want the users/new page to open, in a popup (like facebox or anything
like that) but without breaking the code that I already have for
managing the users (since I want to modify the users for the both
The main problem is that for the popup, I need another layout to be
displayed, and once the record is created/updated, I need to display a
message status instead of redirecting back the user to the users index.
Is there a pattern, a tutorial or something you can point me at so I can
figure out the best way to do it?
