link_to route with method

Reported by TMorgan99 | May 6th, 2010 @ 01:13 AM

In the configuration, 'toggle' is declared :method => :post.

resources :products do
  member do
    get :short
    post :toggle

But in the view,

<%= link_to 'Toggle', toggle_product_path(@product), :method => :post %>
<%= link_to 'Toggle', toggle_product_path(@product) %> XX WRONG XX

I should not have to specify the method.
It breaks the DRY principle
'toggle_product_path' should supply its specified HTTP method.

    You do realize that when using a route product_path(@product), it now depends on the HTTP method supplied what method will be invoked? Like PUT on that path will invoke update and GET will invoke show.

    The behavior you described is imho totally expected, and has nothing to do with DRY.
