How to refresh Image through ajax request

Hi all ,
I am very new for ruby. I am using Ajax Request(Rmagick in controller)
for changing image on my DIV but the problem is it refresh for first
time only then after i have to refresh the browser always. If anybody
having any solution, Please let me know . I am posting my code here

Code in rhtml file

<%= form_remote_tag({:url=>{:controller=>‘image_builders’, :action
=>‘index’}, :update =>‘photo’})%>


Type
<%= submit_tag 'Create Image' %>
Image:
      <div id="photo" style="width:99%;">

      </div>
      </div>

===============================================================================
code in controller

def index
@Rows =20
@Cols = 120
@alpha = params[:alpha].to_i
@margin = params[:margin].to_i
if params[:height].to_i >9000 || params[:width].to_i > 9000
if params[:height].to_i >9000
params[:height] = 8999
end
if params[:width].to_i > 9000
params[:width] = 8999
end
end
if params[:height] && params[:width]
@Rows =params[:height].to_i
@Cols = params[:width].to_i
end
@Start = params[:input_field_1]
@End = params[:input_field_2]
if params[:type] == ‘gradation’
fill = Magick::GradientFill.new(0, 0, 0, @Cols, @Start, @End)
img = Magick::Image.new(@Rows, @Cols, fill)
img.opacity = @alpha/ 127.0 * Magick::TransparentOpacity if
@alpha != 0
img_new = img.rotate(90)
if params[:reverse]
img_rev = img_new.rotate(270)
img_rev.write(“public/images/xyz.jpg”)
render :text => “
else
img_new.write(“public/images/xyz.jpg”)
render :text => “
end
end
end

Have you tried: periodically_call_remote?

or (non-AJAX):

Perhaps the browser caches this image. The browser isn’t aware that it
has changed. I suggest you add some random string to the image’s URL.
E.g. /image/xyz.jpg?56543653.

Hi i just hard code the path like “public/images/xyz.jpg?1234” but after
that i get the following error

no encode delegate for this image format `public/images/xyz.jpg?1234’

RAILS_ROOT: C:/Myworkspace/css_menu_builder - import
Application Trace | Framework Trace | Full Trace

app/controllers/image_builders_controller.rb:68:in write' app/controllers/image_builders_controller.rb:68:inindex’

So please help me how can i add any random string after the URL
Please let me help …
Thanks in advance

You added that random string in img_rev.write(). No good. Add it to the
URL. In other words, add it in the tag. You need to send the
browser ‘’ instead of just ‘’.

I’m not sure it doesn’t belong here. It’s an HTML/HTTP issue, not a
Rails one. It doesn’t involve the Rails API, AFAICS. But I’ll submit to
your judgment and forward Kumar to that other list in my next reply.

Why not use image_path()? Then the number is not random, but a time
signature,
right?
