Hi. I was thinking to re-implement my showCart.jsp using Scriptaculous (after implementing it successfully with prototype). showCart.jsp displays each item in the cart using <table> markups. -- Item name price a text field to allow the user to edit the quantity an ajaxified update link -- If the user entered 0 (zero) in the text field and clicked the link, the item should be deleted from the session and the HTML table will be update accordingly. As I said, this is easy with prototype. I want to employ Scriptaculous this way : Instead of using a text field, I want to use InPlaceEditor control. Sure it is easy to update the session state, but how to update the table ? Yes, I know, I'm misusing InPlaceEditor control, but is it possible to do so ?
Perhaps I'm missing your point, but how you manipulate the page DOM after notification of an event (in this case the completion of the in-place editing) is independent of what triggered that event. You'd use the same DOM mainupation techniques that you would under any other circumstances. Am I missing a detail?
