Info on View Helper Methods

Hi there!
Can anyone point me in the direction of some resources for building
your own view helpers?

I want to acheive something simple:

In the view,

<%= button do %>
Delete
<% end %>

will give

Delete

in the source?

Can anybody help out?
thanks

mmmh, I guess

def button
content_tag :div, :class => “button”
end

will to the trick. but it is just because it is simple… If you have
something complex, you hav to play with capture()

Another simple way, is to play with partials. you can use

def button
render :layout => ‘/shared/button’
end

app/view/shared/_button.html.erb

<%= yield %>

hope it will help

Hey Gabriel - thanks for the advice.

Sorry for the late reply.

I’ve managed to get this working

def delete_button_for(value, path, confirm=nil, id=nil)
content_tag :div,(link_to_remote value, {:url => path,
:method => :delete, :confirm => confirm}), :class =>
‘button’, :id => id
end

:smiley:

Thanks again

Gavin
