Link_to_remote and an id that points to a text_field


#1

Hi!

I’m having trouble with the following thing:

I have a view with a text_field. What I want is to call a remote method
with the value of the text_field as the :id I supply to link_to_remote.
How do I do this?
It’s about an empty form, so the text_field doesn’t have a value when
the page is loaded.

Grtz,

Wouter

Wouter,

Using form_remote_tag will do the trick. This will send your text_field
value along (or any other field in your form for that matter)
