H- Undefined Method?

I know you can use the method h() to HTMLEdit varible, but ruby doesn’t
seem to think it exists when I did this:
@a_user.firstname = h(params[:firstname])
It gave me this error:
undefined method `h’ for #JoinController:0xb7b1c508
What’s wrong? I know That the method is defined. Thanks, sorry for all
the stupid questions, but I am new from CF and i is worlds apart from
Ruby.
P.S I am using @a_user.firstname within the creation of a db row.

Ruby does not have a built-in ‘h’ method. Are you using an
additional framework or third-party libraries?

Sorry, yes, Rails. What method could I use instead? Not really familliar
with ther methods; I’m pretty new to Rails/Ruby. But still, it should
work in a controller file.Thanks,
Ben.

  1. I think that method works only in helper code or in views, but not
    (by default) in controllers.

  2. Please ask rails questions on the rails mailing list.

‘h’ method comes from ERB::Util

Thanks, I’m not used to having to call additional modules or classes
from my native CF.
