Cannot set :content_type on render :update

Reported by Bryan Larsen | November 19th, 2010 @ 07:08 PM

ActionController::Base completely ignores the :content_type attribute on this call:

render :update, :content_type => "text/html" do ... end

Yes, it's a very strange thing to do, but is necessary when using the iframe hack to do AJAX file uploads. If content/type is set to javascript, the browser escapes the html inside javascript. See for more information.

    The resources of the Rails core team are limited, and so we are asking for your help. If you can still reproduce this error on the 3-0-stable branch or on master, please reply with all of the information you have about it and add "[state:open]" to your comment. This will reopen the ticket for review. Likewise, if you feel that this is a very important feature for Rails to include, please reply with your explanation so we can consider it.

    Thank you for all your contributions, and we hope you will understand this step to focus our efforts where they are most helpful.
