module ActionController
# The record identifier encapsulates a number of naming conventions for dealing with records, like Active Records or
# Active Resources or pretty much any other model type that has an id. These patterns are then used to try elevate
# the view actions to a higher logical level. Example:
#
# # routes
# map.resources :posts
#
# # view
# <% div_for(post) do %> <div id="post_45" class="post">
# <%= post.body %> What a wonderful world!
# <% end %> </div>
#
# # controller
# def destroy
# post = Post.find(params[:id])
# post.destroy
#
# respond_to do |format|
# format.html { redirect_to(post) } # Calls polymorphic_url(post) which in turn calls post_url(post)
# format.js do
# # Calls: new Effect.fade('post_45');
# render(:update) { |page| page[post].visual_effect(:fade) }
# end
# end
# end
#
# As the example above shows, you can stop caring to a large extent what the actual id of the post is. You just know
# that one is being assigned and that the subsequent calls in redirect_to and the RJS expect that same naming
# convention and allows you to write less code if you follow it.

# dom_class(post) # => "post"

# If you need to address multiple instances of the same class in the same view, you can prefix the dom_class:

# If you need to read back a key from a dom_id in order to query for the underlying database record,
# you should write a helper like 'person_record_from_dom_id' that will extract the key either based
# on the default implementation (which just joins all key attributes with '-') or on your own
# overwritten version of the method. By default, this implementation passes the key string through a
# method that replaces all characters that are invalid inside DOM ids, with valid ones. You need to
# make sure yourself that your dom ids are valid, in case you overwrite this method.
