Is there a way to trigger a submit of a form by a link outside of the
form. For example:
<% form_tag do %>
<%= text_field_tag :name, params[:name] %>
<%= password_field_tag :password, params[:password] %>
<%= submit_tag "Login" %>
<% end %>
Instead of having the submit button which is located inside of the <%
form_tag do %> <% end %> is it possible to place a link after the <% end
%> which will trigger the submit of the form.
I am trying to keep things consistent on a project I am working on and
all the navigation from one page to the next is done with a link located
in the layout. I would like to keep this the same but have a form in
one of the views with no submit button. Any suggestions?
The code above is not the actual example, I just thought something
visual would help explain.
Thanks in advance
