What is the :or parameter in a submit_tag?


#1

I read the following tag in teh Beast example

<%= submit_tag’Login’, :or => link_to_function(‘forgotten password’,
“$(‘reset-password’).toggle();”) %>

I understand the link_to_function, but what is this :or parameter used
for ?
the link doesn’t appear, so it cannot be used…

thanks for your lights

the login form…

Thanks Rick … I forgot to look into this major helper… ;-))
this app was my ‘tutorial’ in moving to RESTFul app… I was
concentrated on RESTFul aspect and forgot the Rails basics…
