Hi Johan,

your suggestion looks very similar to what I had in mind, apart from the 
fact that you don't use onComplete:. So I suggest there is something to 
learn in this for me. I thought I'd have to use (the deprecated) 
onComplete: block with the Ajax object just to make sure the ajax 
callback is finished before I update the input field. So using your code 
and my idea it would look more like this:

(html jQuery ajax
	script: [:s | myModel doSomething];
	onComplete: [:s|  s << ((s jQuery id: #foo) value: myModel displayString)

(I just edited your code, there might be typos or errors in it).

So I'd be interested in your thoughts on this since I am still a very 
early stage learner in this area....
