Setting header in views?


#1

currently iam using FasterCSV to render csv pages

format.csv do
csv_string = FasterCSV.generate do |csv|
# header row
csv << @query_result[0].keys

      @query_result.each do |x|
        csv << x.values
      end
    end
    #send it to the browser
    send_data csv_string,
      :type => 'text/csv; charset=iso-8859-1; header=present',
      :disposition => "attachment; filename=#{'data'}.csv"
  end

i wanted to contain the “display codes” inside a view so i tried using
respond_to do |format|
format.csv
and having a matching show.csv.erb

but i cant set the header information
-> send_data csv_string,
:type => ‘text/csv; charset=iso-8859-1; header=present’,
:disposition => “attachment; filename=#{‘data’}.csv”
inside the view itself

anyway to do it ?
