If you pass a string to f.submit that will override the default label

and what exatly happens, when i
press submit?

The form gets submitted. What happens next depends on what your
controller does.

Fred

use

f.submit ‘Your custom label’

to override. After pressing the button, you will be passed to the action of the form of the button you pressed.

It will update the record with the data from" _form.html.erb" when u press it.

Look at the html of the form, it says for example

action= “user/create” method=“post”

it means the form will be send to the server with a post to the path user/create

rails router it RESTful (read about REST), if you type rake route in the console you will

see that if rails get send that request it will send the data in the page to the create action

and take the values in the form and create a hash, you then have to process the information

in the controller.

Not necessarily. It will initiate the action specified or implied by
the form_for statement. Whether that updates a record or not depends
on what is coded in that action.
