Fix incorrect parameter ordering to onFailure for Ajax.InPlaceEditor

Reported by Andrew Kaspick | October 1st, 2008 @ 10:20 PM

Pasted from... http://groups.google.com/group/p...

This code for the Ajax.InPlaceEditor in controls.js is supposed to show an alert when an edit fails (sending a status 400, etc.)

onFailure: function(transport, ipe) {
      alert('Error communication with the server: ' +

but transport doesn't contain the text, the ipe variable does. So this is what works instead...

onFailure: function(transport, ipe) {
      alert('Error communication with the server: ' +

onFailure is actually triggered using the triggerCallback function which passes the ipe as the first param and the transport as the second, so in reality, the code should be...

onFailure: function(ipe, transport) {
      alert('Error communication with the server: ' +

As you can see in the code...

triggerCallback: function(cbName, arg) {
    if ('function' == typeof this.options[cbName]) {
      this.options[cbName](this, arg);

this.triggerCallback('onFailure', transport);

triggerCallback passes "this" as the first param, "this" being the ipe, and transport is the second param.
