how to call destroy from jquery

Folks
  Does anyone know how i could call destroy on a controller using rails
3.1 from a jquery function. Im just trying to find some examples online
and cant seem to find anything that shows this. Thanks

I think this will work:

$.ajax({
  type: 'delete'
  [...other stuff...]
});

Regards.

you might want to check out Railscasts.com episodes 196 and 197. He
uses a link to do that -- not sure if that is what you want, but it is
good starting point.
