Stepping up to the plate
Back to our story of Ajax vs the Drupal Form API. After modifying poll.module to work with ahah_forms in a couple of hours, I was feeling cocky, and decided to go for the gold ring: Views. I use views a lot and think it is one of the key drupal modules. And it is the perfect target for Ajax, because creating a View can take over a dozen page refreshes. I went in optimistic. If you read my first post on this topic (http://starbowconsulting.com/blog/tao/dynamically-expanding-ajax-ahah-dr...)
Update:I have just released version 1.3 of ahah_forms, which includes a significantly simplified version of views_ui.module-example. I realized that since I was not able to accomplish my goal of per-section form processing, I can limit most of my changes to the theming functions. Most of the discussion below is still valid.
