Rails complaining about {:method=>:get} on an AJAX call

Hello guys,

I hope you can point me in the right direction. I just moved to Rails
2.0 and I’m having some problems.
I’m using ExtJS (excellent widget library btw), to make my
application.

Right now I’m testing a login form that I’m developing for a web
application, the login form sends the info throught AJAX.

I get a 404 error from the server, it complains that the method used
to pass the values was GET, but I’m pretty sure it was a POST, here is
the firebug error:
-> POST http://localhost:3000/session/404 (313ms)

And this is what firebug report in the [Headers | Post | Response]:

[Post]

module=login&login=Sergio
%20Loredo&password=cevival&authenticity_token=7e4f20fa543cae7c01921acf0c772d81fdb81138

As you can see the [Post] tab in firebug is representing the data I
sent as a GET string. Why is that?

[Response]

Routing Error

No route matches “/” with {:method=>:get}

I’m clueless as to why is this behaving this way, aren’t AJAX calls
supposed to be always POST?

I’m using restful_authentication, and the URL the form is trying to
POST to is /session (I have map.resource :session).

If you need more info, just tell me and I will reply with it.

Thanks in advance,
Adrián.

What’s the code you’re using to make the ajax call?

I’m using ExtJS as I said, and it abstracts the AJAX calling. Here is
the code for the form:

This is the code of the form:

var submitUrl = '/session';

var formPanel = new Ext.form.FormPanel({
            baseCls: 'x-plain',
                        method: 'post',
            baseParams: {
              module: 'login'
            },
            bodyStyle: 'background:#f9f9f9 none; color:#222; padding:5px
35px;',
            defaults: {
              width: 200
            },
            defaultType: 'textfield',
            frame: false,
            height: 70,
            id: 'login-form',
            items: [{
                fieldLabel: 'Nombre de usuario',
                name: 'login',
                value: 'usuario'
            },{
                fieldLabel: 'Contraseña',
                inputType: 'password',
                name: 'password',
                value: 
'contraseña'            },{
                            inputType: 'hidden',
                            name:
Ext.get('authenticity_token').dom.getAttribute('name'),
                            hidden: true,
                            value:
Ext.get('authenticity_token').dom.getAttribute('value')

                        }],
            labelWidth:120,
            region: 'south',
            url: submitUrl
        });

Or can I get the info you want from firebug? if so, if you tell me I
can get it for you.

Yeah, what I’m trying to understand is why would my POST parameters
end like a GET string, if Firebug is clearly showing a POST.

If I understand why that happens, I might be able to correct the error.

Um. Wow. I have no idea about ExtJS sorry.

That seems to be a huge amount of code, I hope it does something useful.

Shame on me, it was a problem with the Rails app, it was doing a
redirect to another page in the method that was invoked in the AJAX
call.

I think that explains why I was getting my POST params as a GET
string.

Well at least I hope this can help someone with my same problem :wink:
