Question about layout

Hey,

I couldn’t find answer for this question for quite long, I hope some
one will explain to me why layout specified in application.rb is not
displayed properly on all views? I mean some divs are displayed wrong
or without layout at all… let’s say login.rhtml has layout on its own
and now it works ( exactly this same as project.rhtml which is layout
for the whole project… ) but when I have this layout “project” in
login_controller it does not work ( it is from app.rb ) So why is it so?
That some views are not displaying layout correctly at all or just
partialy ?

Thanks a million
Lukasz

I’m not sure this will help since I don’t know much about the details of
your app and am not sure I understand your problem statement 100%, but
the
basic rules for the view-layout hierarchy is that the view file that’s
rendered will be 1) one in the app/views/ directory that’s named after
the
controller action, 2) the one that’s specified by the controller action
(ie,
through a render :something), or 3) application.rhtml.

Hey Bill,

Thanks for response but thats not what I mean - acctualy You are right
I was not very clear. Here I will try to explain my problem in more
details.
I have login controler with login method (so I have
app/views/login.rhtm) and I have manage_users controler with delete add
and edit methods on it … (done by scaffolding) and therefor I need
them all to share this same layout… I specified layout in
application.rb but it seems that only manage_users has it…
login.rhtml seems to have only some of it (even if it uses this same
divs! ) I created a new one called login.rhtml inside /app/view/layout
and it looks fine now but that annoys me cos it will require me to
create a new layout file for each view which is not what I want :slight_smile: I
need them to share one layout…

How it is now ? Thanks again.

Cheers,
Lukasz

Lukasz, by default all controllers in your app will render
app/views/layouts/application.rhtml. You don’t need to specify that in
the application.rb.

In your application.rhtml file you should have the following command in
the body:

<%= yield %>

(previously this was <%= @content_for_layout %> which should also work.

this will insert into that spot any content in the specific rhtml for
that controller/method (ie, app/views/login/login.rhtml) if you have a
controller named login with a method named login.
