best approach for dynamic table display

hi, folks -

Suppose I have a stream of data coming in periodically, what would be
best way of displaying a table with dynamic update? Are there any
"rails way" of doing this?

thanks in advance,

Oliver

Put a periodical updater in your view :slight_smile: Then call a method that queries the data, then renders a partial via RJS (make sure your periodical updater is placed OUTSIDE this partial).

This page has some info on this: http://ajax.stealthsettings.com/tutorial/periodically-make-a-remote-call.html

Best regards

exactly what I need. thanks Peter.
