Edit in Place in 1.1


#1

Does anyone have a good example or know of some documentation about
how to implement “Edit in Place” using Rails 1.1? Like the
functionality in Flickr… I’ve googled and googled and can’t find any
good documentation. Maybe it’s because 1.1 is so new? Thanks in
advance.

Have you looked into Scriptaculous?

A little… I see this page:
http://wiki.script.aculo.us/scriptaculous/show/IntegrationWithRubyOnRails
and then this page:
http://blog.codahale.com/2006/01/14/a-rails-howto-simplify-in-place-editing-with-scriptaculous/
(which seems to be down now)

But isn’t everything a little bit tighter/different now with 1.1? I’ve
seen the one older Edit in Place example above, but now with 1.1 I
figured there was a “better” way to do it.

In the view use in_place_editor_field and in the controller use
in_place_edit_for.

E.g.,
<%= in_place_edit_for :meeting, :title %>

and

in_place_edit_for :meeting, :title

Ok, this example is back up now:

Is this the way we should still do Edit in Place with Rails 1.1?
