I have a helper which will be placing certain tags through a view. These tags have "Element.toggle" sorts of relations, so I need to have different id's assigned to their HTML elements. What I would like to do is somehow count them as they are installed in the view and reset at the top of the view. My current thinking is: --- In controller --- before_filter :myhelper_resetcount def someaction end --- In view --- <%= myhelper_tag() %> ... Some stuff ... <%= myhelper_tag() %> ... Some stuff ... <%= myhelper_tag() %> ... --- Results --- <div id="helper_1"> .. </div> ... Some stuff ... <div id="helper_2"> .. </div> ... Some stuff ... <div id="helper_3"> .. </div> Is there another way to do this? Does this seem reasonable to use the 'before_filter' to reset the count? It feels a little awkward to me.
