Extending the onclick properties with link_to?


I’m currently using a link_to function to generate an Ajax call. I’d
like to be able to introduce other operations that occur upon click but
I’m not aware of a way to add to link_to’s funtionality.

I have a div which is hidden and would like to set it to be visible
before (or after) the Ajax call.


Use link_to_remote… it has a :before, :complete, and :loading callback
hook that you can use to perform AJAX actions.



my mistake, I was actually using link_to_remote but I had never used the
:complete option. This does the trick. thanks.
