Rjs partial escaping

Hey all,

I have a calendar that’s updateable via arrows which make ajax
requests. The calendar is included in page using a partial, and the
calendar loads fine, no problems. The arrows which make ajax requests
call an action in the same controller which sets a new datestring five
days in the future. There is a .rjs view associated with this action
that renders the same partial I mentioned before.

Everything works fine, except I appear to be getting the source of the
javascript, instead of the output from the view, so the calendar is
filled with the try/catch statement, and all the values for the
calendar are escaped (I can see the escaped quotes in the browser
view).

Can anyone tell me what I’m doing wrong?

Check the code you are using on the arrow clicks, chances are you are
using an :update => ‘mydivname’. Get rid of the :update and its value,
your RJS should be telling the page which div to update so this is
redundant and is causing your javascript to print instead of run. There
are a few other potential causes of this error but what I suggest is the
most likely solution. Let us know if that does not work out for you.

Best of luck,

yup…you’re right…removing :update => ‘calendar’ did it.

thanks!
