No update after AJAX request!

I try to implement a little AJAX powered voting on a site.

I checked, that the template includes the javascript libraries:

<%= javascript_include_tag :defaults %>

and add a remote form to the template:

    <div id="voting<%= %>">       <%= render(:partial => "voting", :object => artist) %>     </div>

The partial template _voting.rhtml does exist:

Votings: <%= voting.votes %> <% form_remote_tag :url => { :action => :vote, :id => voting } do %>   <%= submit_tag "Vote" %> <% end %>

In the controller I implemented the method to handle the request:

def vote    begin       @artist = Artist.find(params[:id])    rescue ActiveRecord::RecordNotFound      logger.error("Attempt to access invalid artist #{params[:id]}")    else      @artist.votes = @artist.votes + 1    end end

and there is an RJS template vote.rjs:

page.replace_html("voting" +, :partial => "voting", :object => @artist)

When I call the page and press the vote button, the request is send to the server and the database was updated, but the website did not change. When I reload the page the correct new value will be displayed.

I debugged this with FireBug in Firefox an I can see the ajax request thats been sent to the server and the following response to this request:

try { Element.update("voting215", "Votings: 26\n<form action=\"/voting/vote/ 215\" method=\"post\" onsubmit =\"new Ajax.Request('/voting/vote/215', {asynchronous:true, evalScripts:true, parameters:Form.serialize (this)}); return false;\"> \n\t<input name=\"commit\" type=\"submit\" value=\"Vote\" /> \n</form>\n" ); } catch (e) { alert('RJS error:\n\n' + e.toString()); alert('Element.update(\"voting215\", \"Votings : 26\\n<form action=\\\"/voting/vote/215\\\" method=\\\"post\\\" onsubmit=\\\"new Ajax.Request(\'/voting /vote/215\', {asynchronous:true, evalScripts:true, parameters:Form.serialize(this)}); return false;\ \\"> \\n\\t<input name=\\\"commit\\\" type=\\\"submit\\\" value=\\ \"Vote\\\" /> \\n</form>\\n\");'); throw e }

Does anyone has an idea what I'm doing wrong?

I found the solution by myself! It was a wrong Content-type of the AJAX response.

I don't know why, but the Content-type of the response was text/html instead of text/javascript an so the response was not evaluated by prototype. If fixed this by explicitly setting the content type in the action using:

     @headers['Content-Type'] = 'text/javascript; charset=utf-8'
