In place edit, save on blur


#1

I thought I’d seen some discussion on this, but can’t find it. I have
a text area that I’d like to save on blur unless the user clicks
cancel. Anyone got a nice example of this? It’s non-obvious to me
how I force the submit via javascript. Thanks,

Parker,

have you tried using onBlur in the text area?

<%= text_area_tag “my_text”, “content”, :onBlur => "
document.form_name.submit();" %>

Thanks Rob

this works for me, my mistake was using the wrong syntax to name the
form element
