Sean, I’ll make sure to get back to you. I can run a ruby block given a Javascript event, but I’ll cook up a app that does what you ask shortly. Let me know if this is urgent, and I’ll do it faster =)

Ok, I put the following in index.html in a blank ruby dynamic silverlight project


This is a really simple event system, with only one event, one listener... etc.  It has a default handler you can trigger by clicking the link.

Then, here is app.rb


Uncomment line 10 to see that you have a handle on the js object.  Line 11, however, throws an error no matter what I do.

Basically, I want to be able to pass a block of ruby code to be executed whenever the javascript function is called.

I know I can use the HTML stuff to listen for a click directly, but I'm trying to plug into a js system that dispatches events this way, so I can't change the js interface.

Thanks for your help, and let me know if you have any more questions.

Can you send a small example of what you're trying to do? Is it browser native JavaScript or managed DLR JScript?

Subject: [Ironruby-core] Passing a callback to ScriptObject.Invoke

Hi everybody,

I'm plugging in to an existing javascript library using invoke.  I can successfully call my_js_object.invoke and get it to call different functions.

They implemented a function called Observe that accepts a callback (event system).  How can I tie in to javascript events with ruby?  I can pass values, like js_object.invoke "Observe","EventName", but it doesn't really work to put a block as the last (the callback) parameter.

Any ideas?  How can I do this?
