Problem using rjs, please help

I was having fun with rails right up until ajax. And now want to burn
the
whole thing down. Please explain what I am doing wrong here.
index.html.erb contains:

<%= javascript_include_tag 'prototype' %> ...

I AM RJS

<%= link_to_remote("hello", :update => "rjs", :url => {:action => "hello_dude"}) %>

the controller file contains:
def hello_dude
render :text => Time. now
end

So far everything is works. Now I try use let the rjs file :

change the controller file to
def hello _dude
respond_to do |format|
format.js
end

With the hello_dude.rjs file containing:
page.insert_html :bottom, :rjs, Time.now.to_s

Here is what shows up in my browser:

try { Element.insert(“RJS”, { bottom: “Wed Jul 22 23:28:17 -0700 2009”
}); }
catch (e) { alert(‘RJS error:\n\n’ + e.toString());
alert(‘Element.insert(“RJS”, { bottom: “Wed Jul 22 23:28:17 -0700
2009”
});’); throw e }
hello http://localhost:80/orders?search=shoes#

I don’t get it. Please help me get rid of this annoying error message.
Thanks,
Tim

Hi
change

<%= link_to_remote(“hello”, :update => “rjs”, :url => {:action =>
“hello_dude”}) %>

to

<%= link_to_remote(“hello”, :url => {:action =>> “hello_dude”}) %>

Sijo

sijo is right , when you use :update that try to
update that fragment and send the response to that fragment

before the calling of rjs the response already send to that fragment

Thank you. It works. I will put the gasoline back in the truck…for
now.
