Div_for and RJS


#1

Do you have to use an activeRecord object for div_for?
Perhaps I’m taking the wrong approach for “dynamic” divs

so far my education:

  1. id= , is fine for just one div and prototype activity in an RJS (I
    got this to work)
  2. class= , another option, but I don’t see how it can be used
  3. div_for , a helper that uses ActiveRecord objects to come up with
    multiple divs

Below: code that is my best guess for how to proceed, but it doesn’t do
everything it is supposed to do:

sorry about the extra bits

The class will not work for a rjs call… html class elements are not
unique by design so that is not a good idea anywho…

Here is a good description for div_for
http://apidock.com/rails/ActionView/Helpers/RecordTagHelper/div_for

It’s just a way to create a div that has something todo with the
record that you have. So if you have a @user object with id of 1 you
would get id=“user_1” for the div.
