Ruby-on-rails – Can we call a Controller’s method from a view (as we call from helper ideally)


In Rails MVC, can you call a controller's method from a view (as a method could be called call from a helper)? If yes, how?

Best Solution

Here is the answer:

class MyController < ApplicationController
  def my_method
    # Lots of stuff
  helper_method :my_method

Then, in your view, you can reference it in ERB exactly how you expect with <% or <%=:

<% my_method %>
