I have several select lists on a form generated via collection_select pulling values from the database. What I would like to do is, if new components need to be added to a select list (new options), I am providing a link beside the select list which will pop-up a small form to add a new item to the list. Upon saving the new item, I would like the list on the form (parent window) to refresh, so that the new item can be selected. I have tried both opener.location.reload(), which updates the lists but unfortanately wipes out all fields on the form, and window.opener.history.go(0), which keeps the field values, but does not refresh the select lists as needed. Any suggestions on how I can accomplish this? TIA.

How about refreshing the select list using rjs? On Tue, Dec 23, 2008 at 3:34 PM, Brian Penrose <
