Views have a pointer to the controller, but I always setup a couple of convenience variables in ApplicationController that additionally follow Rick's authentication plugins notation (@current_user): before_filter :set_controller_and_action_names def set_controller_and_action_names @current_controller = controller_name @current_action = action_name end -- fxn

Um, why? params[:controller] and params[:action] do exactly this! On Jan 31, 2008 6:52 PM, Xavier Noria <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote: > > > > -- Ryan Bigg http://www.frozenplague.net Feel free to add me to MSN and/or GTalk as this email.

you can get the controller name by @controller.controller_name

you can get the controller's name through @controller.controller_name in view On Jan 31, 12:21 pm, Mario Flores <rails-mailing-l...@andreas-s.net>

If you want to ask for the current controller name in a view the right path in my opinion is to, ahem, ask the current controller for its name: <%= controller.controller_name %> That's proper use of encapsulation. I just happen to prefer an instance variable. -- fxn

These actually deliver slightly different results. My controller is one of a subest of controllers in an admin directory. admin/products_controller.rb params[:controller] returns "admin/products" controller.controller_name return "products" One may work better than the other, but it really depends on your need. Thanks for the help! -Mario
