The set up is this: Throughout the page I have a certain drop-down repeated many times. It is given class="owner_column" It's possible I could generate a unique ID for each of these, but it may prove to be difficult -- although I'll manage if it turns out to be necessary. My problem is adding a new "owner" to all of these drop downs dynamically. I've been experimenting with variations on the following: page.select('select.owner_column').each do |foo| foo.replace_html 'blah' end Where "blah" will probably end up being a partial or an explicit <object> statement. But for the time being even inserting the word "blah" isn't working. This produces an error saying that "replaceHtml" is not a valid function. Notice that at some point my "replace_html" got changed to "replaceHtml" (I'm not sure why or how this happened) Some points to consider: If instead I do foo.hide all of the select statements disappear as expected. This leads me to believe my select statement is accurately grabbing the correct objects. replace_html takes an id argument. Is it mandatory, if so, what do send in its placesince I dynamically grabbed the objects I want to modify? Thanx for your help!!
