Using ERB in $() function ??

Hi,

I am new to Ajax, and I was wondering if it is possible to have an id
passed to a $() function in runtime.

Like I am generating id for an article at runtime doing something like
id=article-<%= article.id %>

Now id I want to have a toggle element on this id then can I do
Element.toggle('$('article-<%= article.id %>')', 'blind') as well..??..
I cannot use the "this" parameter

Thanks and regards
Sanjay

If you mean runtime as in when the rjs is generated then yes: Element.toggle("$('article-#{article.id }')", 'blind')
If you mean runtime as in when the user's browser executes the javascript then no.

Dosen't seem to work like that also. Can you suggest some other
work-around

<p><%= link_to_function "Meta Information >>", "Element.toggle("$('meta-
#{article.id}')", 'blind')" %></p>

Thanks and regards
