passing a text area value with link_to_remote

Hi      I have a link_to_re,ote function as <%= link_to_remote( "Select", {:update=>"div_inside_transfer_reason#{div_no}",:url =>{ :controller => 'popup', :action => 'search_primary_group_ui',:flow_item=>flow_item.flow_item_id, :sd_ticket=>sd_ticket, :div_no=>div_no}},:class => 'itillink1') %>

And the textarea as <%= text_area_tag "transfer_reason", nil, :size => "50x1" %>

How can I pass the value of this text area with lnk_to_remote to action search_primary_group_ui?I am not using any form in the file

Thanks in advance Sijo

Hi      Thanks for your reply..It worked.. :with =>"$('transfer_reason').serialize()" Could you please tell me what is serialize here?What is the use of it?

I encourage you to experiment, but the short version is in the post I linked to before: it creates an appropriate bit of query string for the specified input element.
