Ruby on Rails Auto complete

January 11, 2007 by Michael

# view
Just a little test:
<%= text_field_with_auto_complete :contact, :name %>
# controller
auto_complete_for :contact, :name

Zwei(!) Zeilen im Zweifelsfall. Unglaublich. Jaw dropper.

Wer mehr dazu wissen möchte:

Das ganze basiert Clientseitig übrigens auf

    i just disabled the verification for the token in the controller just for the autocomplete methods like so:

    skip_before_filter :verify_authenticity_token, :only => [:auto_complete_for_meta_tag_tag, :auto_complete_for_meta_tag_value]

    i guess you did something similiar 😉
