pass hidden field to the controller

How do I get the value form the hidden field and pass it to the controller?Also how do I get the value in the controller.

If you include a hidden field in a form, you can access it from params in the controller

so, if you have the following in the view hidden_field_tag 'field_name', 'value'

You can get it in the controller as params[:field_name]
