link_to_remote clicking a link should replace that link


I haven't touched Ruby for a while. How do you replace link_to_remote
text after user clicks on them? Once a user clicks 'Delete this post,'
I want the text gets replaced to 'pending request' -- is there any easy
way to do this?

You'll need a smidgen of javascript for this. if blah where the dom id
of the link, $('blah').update 'pending request' might be enough or you
might want to actually replace the link rather than just change it's
text. The prototype api ( ) has details on
both (obviously if you're using a different js library, read that

Depending on your app you might want to do with when the request is
started rather than when the request completes; one of the other
options like :before might be appropriate.
