Url_for In a Component?

When I try to use url_for within a component I get the following:

NoMethodError in LinkController#get_links
undefined method `url_for’ for Navbar::LinkController:Class

The API docs show url_for as a public method of ActionController::Base.
Since my component is derived from ActionController::Base shouldn’t
url_for be available within the class?

Any ideas?

Thanks!

You probably should not be using components. They should be avoided as
the plague. Absolute performance black holes.

Wow. I didn’t know that. I was going to use a component for creating
my navigation menus just like in the the Agile book. If components are
to be avoided, can you suggest an alternative that would be just as DRY?

Thanks!
