a variable to page.replace_html. This variable would contain the id
of the div I want to update.

Anyone know if/how I could do that?

Thanks!

Convert the string with the ID name to a symbol?

page.replace_html var_containing_id_name.to_sym, :partial => ‘edit’

perhaps?

Jeff

Thanks for the idea Jeff. – Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to work.

you mean like this?

def do_some_ajax_thing
@element_id = “content_div”
end

do_some_ajax_thing.rjs

page.replace_html @element_id, :partial => “edit”

remember, the view templates have access to the attributes defined in
the
controller

I just did some experimenting, and I got this work to just fine
(adapting from Cody F.'s template example:

add.rjs:

page.insert_html :bottom, ‘list’,
content_tag(“li”, “Fox”)
page.visual_effect :highlight, ‘list’, :duration => 3
var_containing_id_name = ‘animals’
page.replace_html var_containing_id_name,
‘RJS Template Test Complete!’

Where is your var_containing_id_name defined? If it’s defined in your
controller, then try using an instance variable,
@var_containing_id_name. Your view templates won’t have access to any
local variables defined in your controller.
