This seems obvious, but I wasn't able to find info on it easily. If you are rendering a partial from a collection: <%= render :partial => 'message', :collection => @messages %> Is there a way inside the partial to tell what item in the collection you are on? For example, if I am in the first element in the collection, I want to do something different?

Hi Brian, You can find out the current index by calling: <%= message_counter %> In your partial. ~ Ben
