jquery mobile update div tag

Hi,

I’m hoping there’s Rails developers who are working with jquery mobile and can help me out with this simple thing. I’m trying to update a div on a page with an Ajax call and it doesn’t work. If I call jquery directly from the browser, the div gets updated. However, if I call it through a remote call, the div remains unchanged. Here’s my code:

something
<%= link_to foobar_url, :remote => true, :method => :put, 'data-ajax' => 'false' do %>click<% end %>

def foobar

respond_to do |format|

format.mobile { render :layout => false }

end

end

$(’.mydiv’).html(‘world’); // in foobar.mobile.erb

I don’t understand jquery that well, let alone jquery mobile. I tried adding .page() and .trigger(‘create’) like I’ve found on some posts, but that didn’t do anything. Also, I made sure that the cache tag was not used.

TIA,

J

Hi,

Can you post error your getting that will help you where exactly error is?.
And Instead of link have you tried simple Ajax call like $.ajax() .

Thanks for replying. There is no error. The Ajax content is sent back to the browser but it doens’t get executed. What exactly is the simple Ajax call syntax?
