Does a partial have access to all the variables of the calli

hey there,

i have a group_controller

in there is an action called run_reports
in the _run_reports.rhml view, i call two partials that are also in the
group_controller.
do those partials have access to the varibles declared in the
run_reports action?
if so, this would save me a lot of repeated code,
if so, how do i do it ? make them @class variables ?

thanks

See the API documentation for the render() method:

http://api.rubyonrails.com/classes/ActionController/Base.html#M000206

Check out the section called “Rendering partials”. You’ll see that you
can pass variables from the calling scope into the partial as local
variables in its scope, using the :partials option.

Hi nephish

Partials are just part of a view and you have access in any view to all
the
instance variables (e.g., @anything) in the controller action that
called
the view.
