Hi,

I have a view, where I need to display some text and then after 5
seconds, redirect to an action automatically (sending one parameter
too).

Googling I’ve found only solutions for PHP and others, nothing for Ruby
on Rails.

How can I do in ROR ?

Many thanks in advance

Since this is client-side behavior, it has nothing to do with PHP, RoR
or any other platform. You can do this using either JavaScript or a
META tag.

For the latter, put something like this in the head of your layout:

<%= @refresh %>

:: and something like this in your controller:

@refresh = ‘’

:: with the appropriate values.

HTH!
