Why is my partial being skipped/cached?


I’ve got a controller action that calls
render :template => “my_view/errors”

errors.rhtml simply renders a partial
<%= render(:partial => ‘error_list_section’) %>

_error_list_section.rhtml does a few things, and renders another
<%= render(:partial => ‘my_view/date_range_section’) %>

_date_range_section.rhtml only seems to be called once, the first time
I hit the page. Subsequent calls to this page (with varying
parameters) do run through _error_list_section.rhtml, but they don’t
seem to run through _date_range_section.

I’m using NetBeans IDE, running WEBrick in debug mode (in JRuby). I
have breakpoints set at the call to render partial for the date
section, and I also have breakpoints in the partial itself.

I hit the breakpoints the first time I view the page, but any further
calls to the page (with different “?month=4” don’t stop me inside the
partial. It really appears that the render partial
_date_range_section is just not being processed.

Any ideas?

Thanks much.

Well, it seems my code was being executed (it had to have been, but
the debugger sure didn’t want to show me!)

After adding many more breakpoints, apparently I found a position in
the partial where a breakpoint was valid. Now why the breakpoint in
the parent that was calling the render :partial wouldn’t allow me to
step into, I don’t know.

So, disregard this post. Sorry.
