What I want to do is trigger an AJAX form submit from an event handler
for a form element. The form is named, and I tried calling
formname.submit() from the onblur handler. However, instead of using the
settings from the form_remote_tag above it, the form ends up submitting
the whole browser.
I know what you’re thinking, why not use an observer? I tried that, and
I ran into some problems. The observe_field call is inside a partial
that gets called through AJAX, and for some reason, IE really isn’t
appreciating things like
<%= observe_field … %>
I get an error way the hell down in prototype.js, says VS.NET debugger.
Does anyone know:
a) how to cause form_remote to actually submit the way its supposed to?
b) how to stop goofball prototype errors when you have scripts in the
Either of these would work out for me, I think.
