Posted in Dropdown menu with form data?

Solved it..

I just had honey in my head.

All you have to do is render a hidden field that you update on click and just render all ul's and li's and toggle their display with jQuery.

Posted in Dropdown menu with form data?

Hey there,

I'm building a dropdown menu for a form, that looks something like this:

  • Entry 1
  • Subset
    • Entry 1
    • Entry 2
  • Entry 2

The selected option has to be in the params later on.

I'm a React dev and know how to build the dropdown menu itself, but how do I wire JS and Rails in this case?
Do I need an AJAX controller, only for the menu? How do I use it in JS?
