module Helpers
# Provides a set of helpers for creating JavaScript macros that rely on and often bundle methods from JavaScriptHelper into
# larger units. These macros also rely on counterparts in the controller that provide them with their backing. The in-place
# editing relies on ActionController::Base.in_place_edit_for and the autocompletion relies on
# ActionController::Base.auto_complete_for.

# DEPRECATION WARNING: This method will become a separate plugin when Rails 2.0 ships.
#
# Makes an HTML element specified by the DOM ID +field_id+ become an in-place
# editor of a property.
#
# A form is automatically created and displayed when the user clicks the element,
# something like this:
# <form id="myElement-in-place-edit-form" target="specified url">
# <input name="value" text="The content of myElement"/>
# <input type="submit" value="ok"/>
# <a onclick="javascript to cancel the editing">cancel</a>
# </form>
#
# The form is serialized and sent to the server using an AJAX call, the action on
# the server should process the value and return the updated value in the body of
# the reponse. The element will automatically be updated with the changed value
# (as returned from the server).
#
# Required +options+ are:
# <tt>:url</tt>:: Specifies the url where the updated value should
# be sent after the user presses "ok".
#
# Addtional +options+ are:
# <tt>:rows</tt>:: Number of rows (more than 1 will use a TEXTAREA)
# <tt>:cols</tt>:: Number of characters the text input should span (works for both INPUT and TEXTAREA)
# <tt>:size</tt>:: Synonym for :cols when using a single line text input.
# <tt>:cancel_text</tt>:: The text on the cancel link. (default: "cancel")
# <tt>:save_text</tt>:: The text on the save link. (default: "ok")
# <tt>:loading_text</tt>:: The text to display while the data is being loaded from the server (default: "Loading...")
# <tt>:saving_text</tt>:: The text to display when submitting to the server (default: "Saving...")
# <tt>:external_control</tt>:: The id of an external control used to enter edit mode.
# <tt>:load_text_url</tt>:: URL where initial value of editor (content) is retrieved.
# <tt>:options</tt>:: Pass through options to the AJAX call (see prototype's Ajax.Updater)
# <tt>:with</tt>:: JavaScript snippet that should return what is to be sent
# in the AJAX call, +form+ is an implicit parameter
# <tt>:script</tt>:: Instructs the in-place editor to evaluate the remote JavaScript response (default: false)
# <tt>:click_to_edit_text</tt>::The text shown during mouseover the editable text (default: "Click to edit")

# DEPRECATION WARNING: This method will become a separate plugin when Rails 2.0 ships.
#
# Adds AJAX autocomplete functionality to the text input field with the
# DOM ID specified by +field_id+.
#
# This function expects that the called action returns an HTML <ul> list,
# or nothing if no entries should be displayed for autocompletion.
#
# You'll probably want to turn the browser's built-in autocompletion off,
# so be sure to include an <tt>autocomplete="off"</tt> attribute with your text
# input field.
#
# The autocompleter object is assigned to a Javascript variable named <tt>field_id</tt>_auto_completer.
# This object is useful if you for example want to trigger the auto-complete suggestions through
# other means than user input (for that specific case, call the <tt>activate</tt> method on that object).
#
# Required +options+ are:
# <tt>:url</tt>:: URL to call for autocompletion results
# in url_for format.
#
# Addtional +options+ are:
# <tt>:update</tt>:: Specifies the DOM ID of the element whose
# innerHTML should be updated with the autocomplete
# entries returned by the AJAX request.
# Defaults to <tt>field_id</tt> + '_auto_complete'
# <tt>:with</tt>:: A JavaScript expression specifying the
# parameters for the XMLHttpRequest. This defaults
# to 'fieldname=value'.
# <tt>:frequency</tt>:: Determines the time to wait after the last keystroke
# for the AJAX request to be initiated.
# <tt>:indicator</tt>:: Specifies the DOM ID of an element which will be
# displayed while autocomplete is running.
# <tt>:tokens</tt>:: A string or an array of strings containing
# separator tokens for tokenized incremental
# autocompletion. Example: <tt>:tokens => ','</tt> would
# allow multiple autocompletion entries, separated
# by commas.
# <tt>:min_chars</tt>:: The minimum number of characters that should be
# in the input field before an Ajax call is made
# to the server.
# <tt>:on_hide</tt>:: A Javascript expression that is called when the
# autocompletion div is hidden. The expression
# should take two variables: element and update.
# Element is a DOM element for the field, update
# is a DOM element for the div from which the
# innerHTML is replaced.
# <tt>:on_show</tt>:: Like on_hide, only now the expression is called
# then the div is shown.
# <tt>:after_update_element</tt>:: A Javascript expression that is called when the
# user has selected one of the proposed values.
# The expression should take two variables: element and value.
# Element is a DOM element for the field, value
# is the value selected by the user.
# <tt>:select</tt>:: Pick the class of the element from which the value for
# insertion should be extracted. If this is not specified,
# the entire element is used.
