ability to set image as input type in submit_to_remote

Reported by gautam chekuri | May 23rd, 2009 @ 12:58 PM | in 3.x

  1. I noticed that the method call, to submit_to_remote, given below, while seemingly valid, wasn't working since the method
    button_to_function in actionpack/lib/action_view/helpers/ javascript_helper.rb was forcing the type to button.
     'Update Resource 2',
     :url => { :controller => 'hello', :action => 'update' },
     :before => "$('loading').style.display = 'block'",
     :after => "return false",
     :html => { :src => '/images/button.gif', :type => 'image' }
  1. It is my opinion that button_to_remote should allow the input type to be either a button or an image since the w3c page on form input control types states that the input type image "Creates a graphical submit button." -

  2. Hence, I have created the attached patch, that adds two test cases to javascript_helper_test.rb and one test case to prototype_helper_test.rb to illustrate the issue at hand and tests the modifications that I have placed in javascript_helper.rb
