How can i call an instance variable?

Hi, Im reading an old tutorial about instance variables.

However i wasnt able to call de instance variable from the CONTROLLER to
the VIEW.

The code is:

VIEW :

title

line 1

<%= @text %>


CONTROLLER:

class MoviesController < ApplicationController
def movies
@text = “movietitle”
end
end


When i load the page, it only shows the line 1 paragraph.

How can i call the instance variable @text?

You can see Controller instance variables in views. The question is,
is
that method #movies in your controller actually being called?

In other words, @text is not assigned the string ‘movie title’ unless
the movies method inside the MoviesController class is executed. So,
what you need to ponder is: how do you make that method execute?
