Javascript popup not firing


I’m using a javascript calendar I found on the web, which I’m hoping
will invoke a popup. For some reason, it almost looks like rails is
squelching it. From my view:

Month+year scrollers

Since this is pure javascript/html, i can’t understand why it’s not
popping up. Is rails squelching it for some reason? If so, why & how
do I fix it.

If I’m down the wrong path - howabout a good on-page calendar for rails
that will populate a field when a date is clicked on? I found
calendargrid but didn’t have much luck getting it to work.


First off, go get Firebug (
invaluable for web, especially javascript, development. It will let you
where the error is if there is one.

From first glance though, make sure you have type=“text/javascript” in

tag, that's thrown me a few times. Otherwise, there's probably a javascript compiler error, which Firebug will tell you about. Jason
