for changing image on my DIV but the problem is it refresh for first
time only then after i have to refresh the browser always. If anybody

Code in rhtml file

···

==================================================================================
<%= form_remote_tag({:url=>{:controller=>'image_builders', :action
=>'index'}, :update =>'photo'})%>
        <dl style="width:450px">
          <dt>Type</dt>
<!-- form element -->

</dl>
          <%= submit_tag 'Create Image' %>
        </div>

<!-- End of form -->
<!-- Preview Area -->
<div>
          <label><b>Image:</b></label>

          <div id="photo" style="width:99%;">

          </div>
          </div>

<!-- End of Preview Area -->

===============================================================================
code in controller

def index
    @Rows =20
    @Cols = 120
    @alpha = params[:alpha].to_i
    @margin = params[:margin].to_i
    if params[:height].to_i >9000 || params[:width].to_i > 9000
      if params[:height].to_i >9000
        params[:height] = 8999
      end
      if params[:width].to_i > 9000
        params[:width] = 8999
      end
    end
    if params[:height] && params[:width]
      @Rows =params[:height].to_i
      @Cols = params[:width].to_i
    end
      @Start = params[:input_field_1]
      @End = params[:input_field_2]
    if params[:type] == 'gradation'
      fill = Magick::GradientFill.new(0, 0, 0, @Cols, @Start, @End)
      img = Magick::Image.new(@Rows, @Cols, fill)
       img.opacity = @alpha/ 127.0 * Magick::TransparentOpacity if
@alpha != 0
      img_new = img.rotate(90)
      if params[:reverse]
        img_rev = img_new.rotate(270)
        img_rev.write("public/images/xyz.jpg")
        render :text => "<img src='/images/xyz.jpg' />"
      else
        img_new.write("public/images/xyz.jpg")
        render :text => "<img src='/images/xyz.jpg' />"

Perhaps the browser caches this image. The browser isn't aware that it
has changed. I suggest you add some random string to the image's URL.
E.g. /image/xyz.jpg?56543653.

Why not use image_path()? Then the number is not random, but a time signature, right?

You added that random string in img_rev.write(). No good. Add it to the
URL. In other words, add it in the <img> tag. You need to send the
browser '<img src="pic.jpg?some-changing-string">' instead of just '<img
src="pic.jpg">'.

Have you tried: periodically_call_remote?

or (non-AJAX): <META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="300">

I'm not sure it doesn't belong here. It's an HTML/HTTP issue, not a
Rails one. It doesn't involve the Rails API, AFAICS. But I'll submit to
your judgment and forward Kumar to that other list in my next reply.
