Newbie question: Transferring values to a text field


I have a simple question. Looks like it’s something basic.

I have 2 elements: a form with a textfield and a link (father), and a
panel with a link that includes a value inside (child). Here’s how my
analogy works:

  • First you click on the link of the “father” to make the “child”
    appear (with an “Effect.Appear” command).
  • Then you click on the link, and two processes are done here:

The value is passed to the textfield.
The “child” dissapears (with an “Effect.Fade” command)

To tell you the truth, I have made and example code of the view
(without the value transfer to the textfield):

<% form_tag :action => ‘access’ do %>

Username: <%= text_field 'user', 'username' %>

Password: <%= text_field 'user', 'passwordkey' %>

<%= submit_tag "Enter" %> <% end %>

<%= link_to_function("User missing?", "Effect.Appear('search'); return false;") %>

User search:

<%= link_to_function("My User", "Effect.Fade('search'); return false;") %>

Can you tell me what’s missing or wrong? I would like to know, because
I’m beginning with Rails 2.1. I know it can be done on standard HTML
and Javascript. So I want to do it on Rails.

BTW, I’m using for this example to make it feel alive!
