Hi all, well I have this helper in my form, but it isn't DRY, as you see: <%= f.text_field(:birth_date, :size => '10', :maxlength => '10', :class => "format-d-m-y divider-slash split-date", :value => (@person.birth_date.nil? ? '': @person.birth_date)) %> so, @person and :birth_date must be dymamic in a helper. How can I write those on a helper?

If you've got: form_for :person ... do |f| f.text_field(:birth_date) (or some small variations on that) you'll get @person.birth_date in the field automatically. David -- David A.
