Hi, I've been using web2py for awhile, and I'm developing an application 
based on the use of components. I'm trying to reload a smartgrid component 
after a delete action in a controller.

Essentially, I have an SQLFORM.grid() that I use to display records in a db 
table, but because of customer requests I'm using modals and components 
instead of the built-in CRUD functionality in the form. I've added links 
with custom forms to do these actions, after which the grid is supposed to 
reload and reflect the recent changes made by the user, but the delete 
action doesn't reload the grid, unlike the rest.

Here's the code:


> def delete():
>     """
>     Deletes an external medic record in the database
>     :return:
>     """
>     from dao import DAOExternalMedic
>     DAOExternalMedic().delete(request.args[0])
>     session.flash = "Record deleted"
>     # response.js = "jQuery('#%s').reload()" % DivEnums.MAINGRID
>     url = URL('external_medics', 'w_manage.load')
>     response.js = "web2py_component('%s','%s');" % (url, DivEnums.MAINGRID)
>     redirect(URL('index'))
>     return
DivEnums.MAINGRID = 'manage'. It's used in the component's div id tag, so 
it should work. Only it doesn't. The record is deleted and the 
response.flash message is displayed, yet the component doesn't reload to 
show the user the SQLFORM.grid reflecting the changes.

I've tried using the jQuery example from this section of the manual:


I don't use Javascript, so I'm really in the dark about how this part of 
the framework works beyond what's explained on the manual. I looked for a 
previous post about this issue but couldn't find much (I'm building the 
components from modules, not using the LOAD() helper). Thanks in advance.
