extending object_path for custom controller actions

Reported by Brian Pokosh | April 23rd, 2009 @ 10:14 PM

I use object_path religiously in my views because I have two different sets of routes. In this example, object_path resolves to either: admin_videos_path



For this controller I'd like to make a slight deviation from restful conventions and have a convert action in the controller. I'd like to be able to use the path object_path(object, :action => :convert) or something similar.

    I know this is a long shot, but did you try the above?

    I did. I like to assume that things will just work the why I want them to.

    Right, but did it work? I'm assuming it didn't, but I figured I would ask.

    It didn't work.

    I get a "ccount_video_url failed to generate from ..." error.

    Ok, I'm on the fence here. I'm kind of inclined to do some method_missing magic so that you can do:


    It kind of fits in better with the existing edit action. The alternative is to do something like:

    object_url(:action => :whatever)

    Like you described above. What do you think?

    I tried convert_object_path(object) before I tried object_path(object, :action => :convert)

    I really didn't expect either to work but that was the order they popped into my mind, if that means anything.

    But I haven't really looked at any of the resourcelogic code to know what kind of downfalls messing with method_missing might have.
