Render() call that does AJAX request?


#1

All,

I have a page where I was using link_to_remote to do an AJAX call to
dynamically update another part of the page.

I’d like to just do the update no matter what (e.g. take out the need
for the user to click).

So I’m thinking that I need to render, but I want my render to do an
AJAX request to the same controller method that my link_to_remote did.

How can I achieve that?

Thanks,
Wes

You could do something like this, this will default to the action in the
same controller.

render(:action => “my_action”)

Thanks
