JS not recognized in link_to_remote respond_to?

In my view I have this test…

<%= link_to_remote(‘AJAX Alert’, :url => ‘/sandbox/submit’, :success
=> ‘alert(request.responseText)’) %>

In my controller, this works and outputs “AJAX Response”…

def submit
render :layout => false
end

But if I add the respond_to block, the format.js never gets
recognized…

def submit
respond_to do |format|
format.js {
render :layout => false
}
format.any(:html, :mobi, :touch) {
# render normal layout
}
end
end

I am a bit outside my comfort zone here, but should that be :url =>
‘/sandbox/submit.js’ above if you want to specify format.js in
respond_to

Ahha! That works, and I found my problem was due to my
application_controller’s before_filter…

before_filter :detect_request

def detect_request
if request.subdomains.first == ‘iphone’
request.format = :iphone
end
end

I have to change my respond to use format.any(:js, :touch)

Thanks!

Got it!

headers[“Content-Type”] = “text/javascript”
render :action => ‘submit.js.rjs’

Whew.

Shit, this is exactly the same problem but it went unsolved…

RJS seems to be a problem when setting up iphone mime-types…

Mime::Type.register_alias “text/html”, :iphone
