Re: rjs update_page problems


#1

my apologies for my previous butchery of the english language…

i have a list of, for example, meal_names. Basically, I can submit a
name
and the name I add shows up in the list.I had this working when i
created an
actual add.rjs template for it. So, feeling good about my self, I
attempted
to move it all to the controller and use some update_page goodness. Now
the
ajaxy magic doesn’t happen. I don’t get any errors but the list doesn’t
update unless I refresh the page. I am not on edge rails (since it broke
my
app) but I am running cody’s RJS plug-in which I believe supports this
behavior. Can anyone provide me any insight into what this is not
working?
It would be much appreciated. Here’s my view:

meal name: <%= text_field ‘meal_name’, ‘name’ %>
<%= submit_tag ‘Add’ %>
<%= end_form_tag %>

    <% @meal_names.each do |meal_name| -%>
  • <%= meal_name.name %> <%= link_to "delete", { :controller => 'meal_names', :action => 'destroy', :id => meal_name.id}, :confirm => "are you sure you want to delete #{meal_name.name}?" %>
  • <% end -%>

and in my controller

def add
@name = MealName.new
if request.post?
@name = MealName.create( params[:meal_name] )
update_page do |page|
page.insert_html :bottom, ‘name_list’, “

  • #{@ name.name}

  • page.visual_effect :highlight, ‘name_list’
        end
    
    end
    

    end
