ys says:

what i did was

1. add format.js in carts controller destroy method

2. add remote: true on empty button

3. create destroy.js.erb in views/carts with

$('#cart').html("<%=j render @cart %>").hide('blind', 1000);

it works fine but seems not following given hint…

suke says:

Does the cart appear when you access the page at first?

or

Does the cart appear after you empty the cart and reload the page?

michael says:

@ys: in your 3rd step i did this:

 
$('#cart tr').not('.total_line').remove();
$('#cart').hide('blind', 1000);

jack says:

@michael: why do we need to use the .not. I had used only the #cart.hide but that did not work after emptying the cart and then adding to it again. However, your solution works great. Can you explain this a little more please?
