I AM TRYING TO MAKE A DAMN TOGGLE BOX, BUT USING MY OWN GRAPHIC AND HAVING THE MOUSECLICK TRIGGER BOTH SWITCHING THE GRAPHIC (via AJAX) AND SAVING THE STATE IN THE DATABASE.
I GOT IT ALL WORKING WITH NORMAL HTML GET CALLS TO THE SERVER, BUT I NEED IT TO BE AJAXIFIED SO THAT THE PAGE DOESN’T RELOAD.
AND TO COMPLICATE MATTERS, IT HAS TO WORK IN A TABLE WITH AN ARBITRARY NUMBER OF ENTRIES, AND MUST OF COURSE SPECIFICALLY UPDATE ITS OWN ROW ONLY.
I have an orders table. I want to have a graphic within
The toggle method then determines the current state of a BOOLEAN field in the database, switch that field, and then render with a call to the rjs file, which I want to update the image by replacing it with another image.
If this new image is clicked it would go through a similar process to get back to the original state.
But alas I cannot quite get there, because I can’t seem to figure out how to get rjs to take a variable so that it will update only the tag on the row where the graphic is found. I basically need to be able to pass in order.id as the name of the html id to rjs, which apparently can only take strings.
I wonder if a partial would solve this issue? Oh, will I ever be a jedi or must I always remain a padawan?
