Re: Javascript

Check if you're using prototype.js library, it's often ommited. Check also Firebug's output.

Re: Javascript

prototype.js exists in the javascripts directory

Re: Javascript

you have to make it available in your layout:

javascript_include_tag :all #or :defaults

Re: Javascript

I have included that also

Re: Javascript

Or do I have to install jquery or jrails plugin to make thus work?

Re: Javascript

you have to download the latest version of jquery from and put the js file in
'YOUR_APP/public/javascripts' folder and to include the jquery with 'javascript_include_tag' helper.
You can also see more details on rails casts: … s-3-part-3
