Error: too much recursion


#1

Good day.

I am getting a javascript error when using multiple observe_field method
calls that simply states “Error: too much recursion”.

View

<td><label for="purchase_order_cutomer_address">Customer

Address:

Ship Via:
  Credit Limit:
Current Bal:
<%= observe_field(:purchase_order_customer_id, :update => :po_customer_address, :url => { :action => :get_customer_address }, :with => "'customer_id='+escape(value)")%> <%= observe_field(:purchase_order_customer_id, :update => :po_credit_limit, :url => { :action => :get_customer_credit_limit }, :with => "'customer_id='+escape(value)")%>

Controller
def get_customer_address
form_customer_id = params[:customer_id]
@found_customer = Customer.find(form_customer_id)
end

def get_customer_credit_limit
form_customer_id = params[:customer_id]
@found_customer_limit = Customer.find(form_customer_id)
end

Returning Views

get_customer_address.rhtml
<%= text_field(“purchase_order”, “customer_address”, :readonly =>
“readonly”, “size” => 25, :value => @found_customer.address) %>

<%= text_field(“purchase_order”, “customer_city”, :readonly =>
“readonly”, “size” => 10, :value => @found_customer.city) %>
<%= text_field(“purchase_order”, “customer_state”, :readonly =>
“readonly”, “size” => 2, :value => @found_customer.state) %>
<%= text_field(“purchase_order”, “customer_postal_code”, :readonly =>
“readonly”, “size” => 5, :value => @found_customer.postal_code) %>

get_customer_credit_limit.rhtml
<%= text_field(“purchase_order”, “customer_credit_limit”, :readonly =>
“readonly”, :value => @found_customer_limit.credit_limit) %>

Does anyone know why this would happen?
Can you not call multiple observe_field methods on the same element in a
form?
By removing the observe_field on the customer_credit_limit the
customer_address works perfectly.
But when I add the customer_credit_limit back in, I get the recursion
error.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.
