Javier Q.

Perhaps.
Actually i have number of thumnails on a page and i want when someone
click on any thumnail it should show its bigger image without
effecting the other thumnails and vice versa.
In a simple html file ,its easy to do but in ruby on rails i don't
know how to perform it.

I think you can call a link_to method to point to this image in a large size! If you are using paperclip you can call link_to “image_foo“, path_to_original_size“ .

Thanks

thanks for the reply.i hope it will help but i am not a rails expert
so don't know how to implement it
please can you provide a example or link for that?
I will be grateful to you.

Your question is not rails related since that is done via javascript. Here are some libs for jquery:

jquery will work in rails's environment?

YES! :smiley:

That’s why I mentioned fancybox… it’s a javascript way to enlarge images

I bit of explanation. Rails handle the server side code, javascript is run on the client side. If you want content in your html to change like a resizing of an imagem the best way to do it is via manipulating it via javascript, rails can be paired with any javascript library.

In addition to the input from others I just wanted to point out that
Rails just generates html and javascript to put on the page. If you
know how to do it in html and you are not sure how to do it the Rails
way, then just code the view to generate that html. Remember that you
can always use View > Page Source (or something similar) in the
browser to look at the html that your view file is generating.
