Popover window how-to

Can anybody point me to good info, preferably all current & modern Ruby
1.9 + Rails 3.1 + JQuery, on doing a popover window and integrating into
a RoR app?

Essentially I need to do something similar to autocomplete, and calendar
pickers, and so on. When focus goes into an area, pop over a grid of
checkbox choices for selecting the most common items, if user starts
typing to select something not in that grid, replace that grid with
search results.

Do you mean like json-rpc mapping for rails?

Hi Scott,

Still a newbie myself to Rails, but these might help:

I installed the OptinPop plugin to create pop over windows for my
newsletter opt-ins. I wanted to measure the effectiveness of my pop over
window’s ability to get people to sign up for my newsletter. Since I
have been using Dynatracker to track the number of people who click on
my links and also to split test elements on my web pages, I decided to
find a way to split test multiple versions of my pop over window with
Dynatracker to see which one converts the best.
Here’s a sample of my CSS code of the pop over window…

/* POP OVER */
#popover
{
width: 650px;
height: 380px;
margin: 0px;
padding: 0px;
text-align: center;
background-image:
url(“http://www.maverickwebcreations.com/track/s.php?id=X”);
}
#popover #popover_form
{
position: absolute;
top: 280px;
left: 198px;
margin: 0px;
padding: 0px;
}
#popover #popover_form label
{
float: left;
width: 100px;
margin: 3px 5px 10px 0px;
padding: 0px;
font-family: Georgia, “Times New Roman”, Times, serif;
font-size: 12px;
font-style: normal;
color: #000000;
text-align: right;
}
#popover #popover_form input
{
margin: 0px;
padding: 3px;
font-size: 12px;
font-style: normal;
color: #000000;
float: left;
}
#popover #popover_form input.popover_form_textbox
{
width: 185px;
}
#popover #popover_form input.popover_form_button
{
width: 194px;
}
#popover #popover_form br
{
clear: left;
}
