Form rendering commands, which one?


#1

So far I have tallied 3 different ways of creating a form

start_form_tag
form_for
form_tag

Is one of the above the latest and greatest and is the preferred method
or is there a certain use for each of the above?

The prefered method is “form_tag”, eg:

<% form_tag :action => “create” do %>
My pretty form!
<% end %>

Thanks for the input. From the article it does mention that the
start_form_tag, end_form_tag is deprecated, but no real comparison
between the form_tag and form_for. I am assuming they are both
acceptable…
