1 layout.admin.inc layout_ajax_form_update($form, $form_state)

AJAX handler that updates a portion of the form.

This is meant for generic use. It depends on a few variables in $form_state:

  • $form_state['ajax_rebuild_form']: The function name that builds the form that will be updated.
  • $form_state['ajax_update']: An array of keys representing the portion of the form that should be updated.

  // pieces.
