Remote_form_for file_field strangeness


#1

Does anyone see any problem with this form?

  • form_remote_for(Photo.new, :html => {:multipart => true, :target
    => :uploader}) do |f|
    .form_element
    = f.label :photo
    = f.file_field :collateral
    = hidden_field_tag :container_id, @shoot.id
    = hidden_field_tag :container_type, @shoot.class.name
    .form_element
    = f.submit ‘Add Photos’

The photo has a paperclip attachment called collateral, and a double
polymorphic relation with container (which can be a shoot, model or
photographer). At the bottom of the page is an iframe with the id and
name ‘uploader’. However, when submitted via AJAX, it never
serializes the file_field: both the development log and firebug both
only show the hidden params being passed. It works fine as a
form_for, however.

I’m using 2.2.2 on OSX 10.5.6 and the responds_to_parent plugin to,
well, respond.

Thanks,
Todd
