Pass the params please

I’m not figuring out an easy way to do this.

I’m trying to paginate and keep the params from my ‘find’ without making
it a fully blown method.

my params are
[:right][:name]
[:right][:controller]
[:right][:action]

view code is relatively simple pagination stuff…

<%= link_to ‘Next page’, {
:page => @right_pages.current.next,
:params => params
} if @right_pages.current.next %>

If I do it like shown above, my params are nameactioncontrollerclients
and that obviously doesn’t work.

If I do it like

:params[:right] => params[:right]

that returns an error

:params => params[:right]

wipes out other params

Suggestions?

My experience is that the built-in helpers don’t do a great job of
preserving multi-dimensional hashes as you’re trying to do below. You’ll
probably need to write a helper method. And if you DO write a helper
method,
or otherwise figure this out, please please share the solution :slight_smile: I’ve
had
the same problem but haven’t gotten around to fully addressing it.

Hey, at least you defined the terminology that wasn’t coming to me to
define the problem.

In this instance, I am not interested in working out a solution since I
was looking for a Q&D method which as you suggest, isn’t there.

I can obviously flatten the params hash within the controller or pass
them to session variables, etc. but I wanted Q&D and thus, have remedied
it by setting the ‘per page => ridiculously high’ since this is a simple
list that will never be all that long and usage is only the system
administrator (me).

Thanks
