JS Toggle graphics on action / click

I’ve got a simple toggle option (On/Off) in my admin GUI list action. I
would like to click on this graphic and change the status of the option.

I got the whole thing working in the controller & db through this
beautiful one-liner

@item = Item.find(params[:id]).toggle!(‘display_status’)

The thing I can’t achieve - even after several hours of labouring my
brain cell - is how to update the graphics that I click on, ie swapping
the On graphics for Off & vice versa.

In what way do I do this with Rails & Prototype ?? I’ve been trying
multiple options/scenarios to the best of my abilities, but it still
ain’t working. Any ideas and help, please ?

an inline rjs could do it in two lines with replace_html

eye matz,
One easy way is to make the 2 images into one and use CSS to display it
(see example below). Then create a function in JavaScript that attaches
an onclick event handler to the class of what ever contains your image.
The initial display would be “ON” and when clicked the the JavaScript
would change the style of .toggle_img to background-position: 0px 20px;
You’ll also need a counter in the function to switch it back.

.toggle_img {background: url(…/i/toggle.gif) 0px 10px no-repeat;}
