In_place_editor to add new records?


I’ve been toying with the in_place_editor helper, and it’s pretty cool.
However, I was wondering if it could be used (or if there is an
that can be used) to add new records. For example, in Tadalist, you can
new items to a list by clicking an add button, which pops up an AJAX
field right there. I think that this is also the case for adding tags
Flickr photos.

I can, of course, figure out how to do this by handwriting javascript,
but I
figure since I’m including the monstrous Prototype and Scriptaculous
libraries anyway I may as well make use of them.

Any ideas as to how you would go about doing something like this?


In retrospect, my question was … I belive ‘mentally challenged’ is the
politically correct way of saying what I mean.

It makes much more sense to have a form field already available below
list, at which point it’s just a regular form_remote. Fewer clicks for
user, fewer headaches for me, everybody wins.
