Hey, this feels like a dumb question, but I feel like this should be working. I have a partial, and sometimes when I render it I'm passing in a variable via :locals called "invisible", because sometimes I want it to start out as "display:none" then use js to make it appear. If I don't pass it that variable, I want it to display normally. So I have this line in my view: <% if invisible %> style="display:none;" <% end %> And I'm getting the "undefined local variable or method `invisible'" error. I would think that "invisible" would be nil, and evaluate to false, as it does in ruby code. Is that not the case with .html.erb files? I tried this, and get the same result: <% if !invisible.nil? %> style="display:none;" <% end %> Can anyone shine some light on this quirk? Is there a place that describes how erb works differently than ruby code? Thanks in advance!
