Modalbox rails var interpolation

Howdy everyone.

I am using modalbox which is very nice an easy to use. I have this
for an edit for a company listing:

<%= link_to('Manage Companies', {}, :onclick => 'Modalbox.show(\'/ companies/edit/#{company.id}\', {width: 600}); return false;') %>

The link is not putting the company.id in it puts #{ company.id}. how
do I get this to interpolate the rails variable properly?

Review your basic Ruby syntax. :). Variable interpolation only happens
in double-quoted strings.

Ok, why does this work?

<%= button_to_function “Add Site”, remote_function( :url =>
{ :controller => ‘addsites’, :action => “addsitetomop”, :id=>
@mop}, :with => "‘site[comp_#{company.id}]=’ + $(‘site_comp_#
{company.id}’).value + ‘&site[customer_#{company.id}]=’ + $
(‘site_customer_#{company.id}’).value ")%>

This is because single quoted strings are not interpolated. You need
to use doubles or any of the other string quoting methods.

For the exact reason that I posted. Read my first post again and spot
the differences!

Really, if you can’t answer that question yourself after reading this
thread, you need to sharpen your powers of observation before you have
any business programming in any language.
