setting a var in the view

It would be a lot better just to just records.size, because the info's
already there.

Anyway, you can do
<% counter = 1 %>
<% records.each do |r| %>
<% counter += 1 %>
.. other stuff
<% end %>

Your best way is to use each_with_index, for example

<% @users.each_with_index do |user, index| %>
User #<%= index+1 %>. <%= user.username %>

<% end %>

That seems to work well for me :slight_smile:
