One of the reasons I bought the book (having bought the prior versions) was to try to work my way thru the problems I have with my earlier apps that use observe_form.
I know the designers decoupled RoR from the prototype.js but trying to find anyone on the net who can explain how the new way to do an observe_form call is proving utterly fruitless and painful.
The only way I got it working in the end was to use a plug-in that restored the methods that link directly to prototype.js
I am trying to understand what I need to do to follow the new rails.js protocol but after 4 weeks of looking am still mystified.
I was hoping this book would cover these dramatic changes in RoR 3.0 but can’t find any reference to observe_form.
I am wondering if I now need to become expert in js and by pass the RoR interface to them ?
