I have a link that says:
<%= link_to_remote("Data", :update => 'pie_graph_div', :url => {
:action => :show_pie_graph, :mode => 'nums' }) %>

which calls *show_pie_graph*:
	def show_pie_graph
		render :layout => false
		@mode = params[:mode]
<img src="/surveys/make_pie_graph/<%=@mode%>" />

But @mode on view always is nil.
I can see the :mode from the view by calling params[:mode] but not
from the controller.

What's the problem? Did I misunderstand something?

Thanks in advance,
- H

Set @mode before calling render.

We develop, watch us RoR, in numbers too big to ignore.

You need to swap the lines in the controller.

	def show_pie_graph
		@mode = params[:mode]
		render :layout => false

The 'render' method uses the current state of the controller at the time
is called to setup the view.  At that time, @mode is not yet set, so
that is
what the view sees.
