View change on db field change

I have an issue whereby, say I have a button in a view......that shows
one way if a boolean field in a db is true, and another way when it is
When the value of that field in the db changes, I want the button;s
state in the view to change as well.
How would you guys recommend I do this? Thanks, R.Vince

Just pass the state of the boolean up to the view ( @state = whatever
in the controller ) then test this in the view and change the
appearance as necessary. Probably setting the button class and using
