RJS Documentation?


#1

I have tried to hunt down some more information on the RJS templates and
have found not much more than a few examples on the web.

What I was really looking for was a spec, or API reference which
outlines
all the different methods of the “page” object that is available within
the
templates.

Thanks, Nathan

The main docs aren’t updated until a new version is posted, so you’ll
have to generate them yourself.

cd path/to/rails/trunk/actionpack
gem rdoc

Then, open path/to/rails/trunk/actionpack/doc/index.html in your
browser and look for
ActionView::Helpers::PrototypeHelper::JavaScriptGenerator

One unlisted method (it’s protected) is #record, which you’ll see if
you look at the source of the other methods. It’s for outputting raw
javascript if you need it:

page.send :record, “alert(‘hello’)”
