Problem with text_field_with_auto_complete

I Just looked into how to use text_field_with_auto_complete, but for
some reason it wont work on my page. It gives me this error as an
undefined method.

undefined method `text_field_with_auto_complete' for

I have javascript_include_tag :defaults in my layout, I have the latest
version of scriptaculous, i even did script/plugin install auto_complete
in my terminal. I tried using another scriptaculous method and it worked
just fine. Anyone have an idea as to why this one wont work?

The problem is not in your javascript. The problem is the View doesn't
know that method. Check the auto_complete example again your probably
missing a line like:

auto_complete_for :post, :title

It should work. Did you restart the server?

Hope it helps, haven't tried it, but looks fairly simple... also take
a look at the comments.


It is fairly simple to use. The problem, most likely, is that
autocomplete was pulled out of the core and placed in a plugin.
autocomplete does not autocomplete itself. :slight_smile:

Yeah apparently i forgot to restart the server and thats why. I then had
another problem with permission which i solved by using

protect_from_forgery :only => [:create, :update, :destroy]

Now it seems to be working ok :slight_smile:
