Join Kevin Skoglund for an in-depth discussion in this video URL parameters, part of Ruby on Rails 3 Essential Training.
In the last movie, we saw how to create a link and how to specify the two most…important parameters for that link:…the controller and the action.…But what if we want to send other parameters in the URL string?…Maybe we're browsing a multi-page list and we want to view only page five.…We need to send that in the URL somehow, right?…So how can we add that parameter and then how in our controller can we…access those parameters?…That's what we'll see in this movie.…Just to be clear, when I'm talking about additional parameters in the URL,…what I'm talking about is having ?page=3& name=Kevin. Those would be two additional…attribute pairs or parameters that are being sent in the URL string.…
They are to the right of the question mark and they're separated by the &.…That's just basic HTML.…But what we need to know how to do is how to add those to the Rails URL hash…that we're using when we're creating our links.…The process of doing that is super simple.…All we have to do is add them as key/value pairs to our hash.…
