Partial js file with locals

I have a lot of js files like new.js, index.js, create.js etc that handles my Ajax calls and other jquery code
As the have many common code snippets I have tried to use partial js files
For example I have a new.js file that calls a partial _new.js

new.js
<%= render :partial=>‘new’, :formats=>[:js],:handlers=>[:erb] %>

_new.js
<% if params[:group_id]%>
$("#group_participants_content").html("<%= escape_javascript(render(:partial=>‘form’))%>");
$(".remote_selected").removeClass(“selected remote_selected simple-navigation-active-leaf”);
$("#group_mail").addClass(" remote_selected simple-navigation-active-leaf");
<%else%>
$("#users_content").html("<%= escape_javascript(render(:partial=>‘form’))%>");
$(".remote_selected").removeClass(“selected remote_selected simple-navigation-active-leaf”)
$("#mail").addClass(“remote_selected simple-navigation-active-leaf”);
<%end%>
// Change our States
History.replaceState({action:’<%= “#{controller.action_name}/#{controller_name}” %>’}, ‘<%= “#{controller.action_name.titleize} #{controller_name}” %>’, ‘?action=<%= “#{controller.action_name}/#{controller_name}” %>’);
var url=History.getState().url;
$("#help").attr(‘href’,"/helps/0?url="+url)

That works but to be useful I would like to add locals as
<%= render :partial=>‘new’, :formats=>[:js],:handlers=>[:erb], locals=>{id=>"#group_participants_content"}%>
and change _new.js to
$(’"’+id+’"’).html("<%= escape_javascript(render(:partial=>‘form’))%>");
However that does not work- The js file seems then not to be loaded at all

Anyone that has any suggestion of what is wrong ?

Appreciate any help ?

I don't know whether there are any other problems but it should be
:locals and :id I think

Thanks for your answere, but that was just a typo from me. The code has :locals and :id

When asking questions it is always a good idea to copy/paste then you
are more likely to get helpful replies. Perhaps there are different
typos in your code that you have accidentally corrected when you
re-typed it here.

The problem is now solved
The correct use of locals should be

$("<%=id%>").html("<%= escape_javascript(render(:partial=>'form'))%>");
and not
$('"'+id+'"').html("<%= escape_javascript(render(:

partial=>‘form’))%>");
