Standup 10/20/2008: Preventing Flash from Reloading

Interesting Things

  • We discovered why a Flash widget was reloading itself: changes the CSS position value. We were hiding the Flash widget by moving it’s containing div off the page with position: absolute; left: -9000, and removing the class that had those values to show it again. It turns out that changing that position value causes the Flash to reload. By keeping the position:absolute setting when we both show and hide our container div, the Flash no longer reloads.

Ask for Help

“When using Rails’s date_select helper, is there a corresponding helper method to turn that date format into a Date object in the controller?”

Some Snippets are available, but how about a Rails built-in solution?
