I have been searching around for a way to replace the ugly 'submit' button with a pretty graphic, and I cannot seem to get anything to work. This has to be easier than it seems! An example would be much appreciated.
A more elegant way is to change the look of the submit button using css, for example, you could add a background image and remove the default border and background color. By doing this you could still use the helper.
I think you're looking for image_submit_tag: http://api.rubyonrails.org/classes/ActionView/Helpers/FormTagHelper.html#M001740
rails has its image submit tag . you can have a look at api.rubyonrails.org or apidock.org for help
The image_submit_tag is exactly what I needed. Thanks a lot.
