returning to a view after completing an action

Newbie question

Hi there I have links that goes to my edit address form in several
views. Does RoR have any clever helpers/ways to return my user to the
originating view when they have finished with the edit form ??? or do
need to roll my own

Thanks

try

redirect_to :back

upon a successful save

redirect_to :back

From the doc on the redirect_to method at api.rubyforge.org
:back: Back to the page that issued the request. Useful for forms that are triggered from multiple places. Short-hand for redirect_to(request.env["HTTP_REFERER"])

hth,
