Rails - Any way to pass state to a component?


#1

I am trying set up a rails app that utilizes components. I need to be
able to pass some state (a bunch of name value pairs) from the Main
controller to the component.

Is there any way to pass this state info using render_component?

Check the docs, but I believe you can pass a hash called :params with
any name-value pairs you need. They then show up in the @params
instance variable in the components controller:

render_component :controller => “foo”, :action => “bar”, :params => {
:baz => “bil” }

class FooController

def bar
@baz = @params[:baz] # “bil”

end

HTH.
