Ruby Rails form

I have an empty form into a link.  That is instead of having a button initiate a get request, do it with a link.

The form looks like this:

<%= form_tag somethpath(@data), method: get, :remote => true, :'data-attr' => @data.id do %>
  <%= submit_tag "Search" %>
<% end %>

Is there an equivalent way to do this using link_to ?

Do you want to replace the submit button with a link_to link?

You'll have to use JavaScript for this then

<%= link_to 'Save', "#", :onclick=>"$('.search_form').submit()" %>

Open in new window
