Getting params from one view into another

Hi Ruby Forum,

I have a situation that I have never run into before. I need to pass a
param from one view into a different section of my controller.

I'm having a bit of trouble passing a variable from my view into another
part of my controller in order to control what IP address is used to
have the graph applied.
I want to pass the IP address to the controller from the view as
[:text1] in this example into "one" in my controller.

Normally, when I pass a param, it is used in the same part of the
controller..ie, in this case: "view"....not in this case. I need to pass
the param from the view page into "one" in order to see the graph I'm
generating.

Hi,
  Two methods:
1.
   in the view action, you can - "$input = params[:text1]" ; then in
one action, fetch it out, such as " s = $input; puts "this is s: #{s}"
".
$input makes it as a global variable.
2.
  you can build a "form" in the view.rhtml, and deliver the
params[:text1] by this form to the next action "one"

   Hope it solves your issue.
