module ActionController #:nodoc:
# The flash provides a way to pass temporary objects between actions. Anything you place in the flash will be exposed
# to the very next action and then cleared out. This is a great way of doing notices and alerts, such as a create
# action that sets <tt>flash[:notice] = "Successfully created"</tt> before redirecting to a display action that can
# then expose the flash to its template. Actually, that exposure is automatically done. Example:
#
# class PostsController < ActionController::Base
# def create
# # save post
# flash[:notice] = "Successfully created post"
# redirect_to posts_path(@post)
# end
#
# def show
# # doesn't need to assign the flash notice to the template, that's done automatically
# end
# end
#
# show.html.erb
# <% if flash[:notice] %>
# <div class="notice"><%= flash[:notice] %></div>
# <% end %>
#
# This example just places a string in the flash, but you can put any object in there. And of course, you can put as
# many as you like at a time too. Just remember: They'll be gone by the time the next action has been performed.
#
# See docs on the FlashHash class for more details about the flash.
