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 counter parts in the controller that provides them with their backing. The in-place
# editing relies on ActionController::Base.in_place_edit_for and the auto completion relies on
# ActionController::Base.auto_complete_for.
module JavaScriptMacrosHelper
# 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>:cancel_text</tt>:: The text on the cancel link. (default: "cancel")
# <tt>:ok_text</tt>:: The text on the save link. (default: "ok")
# <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

# 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 a 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,
# su be sure to include a autocomplete="off" attribute with your text
# input field.
#
# 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 field_id + '_auto_complete'
# <tt>:with</tt>:: A JavaScript expression specifying the
# parameters for the XMLHttpRequest. This defaults
# to 'fieldname=value'.
# <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
# seperator tokens for tokenized incremental
# autocompletion. Example: <tt>:tokens => ','</tt> would
# allow multiple autocompletion entries, seperated
# 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.
