Open new window

First, I’m very new in rails, i’m loving it and didn’t encounter any
problems in the simple tasks i’m doing yet.

What I’d like to do is to open a new window containing the info of a
Model
(something like the show scaffold method) with a simple “close” link to
close the window.

Can someone please give me some directions?

thanks in advance.

In HTML, you use a link whose target is ‘_new’:

In a Rails app you would use the HTML options hash of the link_to
method to set :target=>’_new’.

with a simple “close” link to close the window.

Every window already comes with a standard “close” button at the top.
I’ve never understood why some web sites feel they need to add a
special link to help the user out.

But if you really want to do it, you’ll need a bit of JavaScript to
close the current window, then make a link whose href is
“javascript:” followed by the script.
