helper with block compile error

HI,

i’m trying to write a helper that replaces link_to_remote that accepts a block but it gets a compile error in the template:

I don’t know what I’m doing wrong… TIA

application_helper.rb

def link_block_to_remote( options = {}, html_options = {}, &block)

concat(link_to_remote(capture(&block), options, html_options), block.binding)

end

in template

<% link_block_to_remote

{:url => { :action => :start_login } },

{ :href => url_for( { :action => :start_login }), # when degraded

:class => “home-box home-box2”,

:id => “home-login-container”} do %>

LOGIN

Already have an account?

LOG IN NOW

<% end %>

the error I get is a compile error

compile error

syntax error, unexpected tASSOC, expecting ‘}’

_erbout.concat " "; link_block_to_remote { :url => { :action => :start_login } },

^

syntax error, unexpected ‘,’, expecting kEND

_erbout.concat " "; link_block_to_remote { :url => { :action => :start_login } },

^

syntax error, unexpected kDO, expecting kEND

:id => “home-login-container”} do ; _erbout.concat “\n”

if i remove the html_options from the call, and remove the braces, it is ok

<% link_block_to_remote :url => { :action => :start_login } do

does it help if you use parenthesises around for
link_block_to_remote() ? (which by the way is good style)

           <% link_block_to_remote
(
               {:url => { :action => :start_login } },
               { :href => url_for( { :action => :start_login }), #when
degraded
               :class => "home-box home-box2",
               :id => "home-login-container"}
) do %>
             <h1>LOGIN</h1>
             <p>Already have an account?</p>
             <p>LOG IN NOW</p>
           <% end %>

yep that took care of it, thanks
(my first helper using &block :))
