Lesson learned: careful with :update in link_to_remote


#1

A link_to_remote call was generating Ajax.Request instead of
Ajax.Updater. I couldn’t for the life of me understand why. There was
some extra indirection because I used there a helper of mine that
receives an image and generates a link_to_remote with image_tag and
some stuff for image rollover.

After browsing the sources in the API website (hey, that “[ show
source ]” feature is really wonderful) I saw that remote_function(),
used by link_to_remote(), chooses one or the other depending on
whether :update is present.

Oh, light! Exactly, I came back to the template and had actually
written “:udpate”.
