Render Partial virtual pages


#1

Hi guys,

We all know this snippet of code:

render(:partial => ‘page’)

here’s my problem, I think I need to create a render where in the page
will be dynamic. example, page = username and my code will need to
render(:partial => ‘username’).

is this even possible?

My issue is with a chat application I’m trying to do. I already have
multiple div’s and they all have unique names already. Now the problem
lies herein, I have a page with multiple div layers to represent each
person I’m talking to. When I send a message to one person, it goes into
my app and I have a listening module that will render whatever got
picked-up. But because my controllers renders to the same field of
render(:partial => ‘page’), all of the divs get updated and the message
I send to one person gets sent to all people as well…

hope you guys could give me some insight.

Thanks,

Bing
