Hello, My plan is to have a ruby class with a variety of functions in it and I want to be able to call functions from this class using AJAX. I think the easiest way to do this then is to pass a cgi parameter named function or soemthing with the value being the def I wish to call. So something like this // this contained in test.rb def test(x) print x end from .js file url = test.rb?action=test('help'); xmlObject.open("get",url,true) xmlObject.send anyway something like that and then in test.rb I want to have something like if params.has_key?("action") eval(params["action"]) end and hopefully it would return "help". Please let me know if this is the best way to do this and also if I am being unclear I am more than happy to clarify. I have tried something like the above technique and nothing is being returned to the XmlObject. Thank you

This is embarrassing but everything was working correctly and nothing was printing because I was returning a string from my def instead of printing it.
