Global Variables for a Search Toggle ?

Hi, i'm adding a searching part to my app and need to give the user an
easy way to toggle between searching by Registered / Activity

Basically there will be a line of text at the top saying 'Searching by :
Registered', when the user clicks Registered (a link) it will revert it
to searching by Activity, and vice versa.

Should be simple enough but i've experimented with cookies and global
variables in Ruby and getting nowhere fast.

Should basically be a method which is fired when the user clicks the
link and in turn flips a variables value from 1 to 0 and back again.

Any ideas, stumped,

def toggle_regisistered_activity
  session[:reg_ac] ||= false
  (session[:reg_ac] = !session[:reg_ac]) ? (:registerd) : (:activity)
end
