auto_complete

Hello,

is there any way to pass additional parameters (e.g. a string) from the
text_field_with_auto_complete to the controller?

Indra

You can use the :url option. The symbols you set after :action will be
appended to the querystring.

<%= text_field_with_auto_complete :my_field, "Enter some text", {:url
=>{:action => 'auto_complete_action_name', :my_param =>
"hello"}, :method => :get} %>

best.

Thank you!
That's exactly what I was looking for.

this didn't work for me

<%= text_field_with_auto_complete :search, :contains,
               {:url => {:action =>
"auto_complete_for_search_contains",
                :language => "English" }, :method => :get} %>

produced

  Parameters: {"search"=>{"contains"=>"a"},
"authenticity_token"=>"2c9f26a81557318a3d7ce1ff64bc57bea43c5fdc",
"controller"=>"phrases",
"action"=>"auto_complete_for_search_contains"}

i tried pretty much every combination of :url :html and curley braces
that is humanly possible and nothing seemed to work, any suggestions?
