Add the custom_fields helper to JournalsController #267


Updated by Felix Schäfer at 2011-03-07 06:31 pm

The interesting part of the log:

ActionView::TemplateError (undefined method `format_value' for #<ActionView::Base:0xd5be200>) on line #23 of app/views/journals/index.rxml:
20:       xml.content "type" => "html" do
21:         xml.text! '<ul>'
22:         change.details.each do |detail|
23:           xml.text! '<li>' + show_detail(detail, false) + '</li>'
24:         end
25:         xml.text! '</ul>'
26:         xml.text! textilizable(change, :notes, :only_path => false) unless change.notes.blank?

I guess some helper is missing, I'll have a look real quick.

Bingo, the journals controller is missing the helper :custom_fields. I've committed the change in c8e584e894955779924a3328b844e3a44923e44f.

I discussed this with Yuki yesterday. The bug occurs because the journals_controller doesn't include the CustomFieldHelper, which is required because of source:app/helpers/issues_helper.rb#L143. The solution would be to either include the helper in the journls controller, or to include the helper into the issues helper. I would prefer the latter.

In the future, this isn't even necessary, as the journals controller is killed by #123.

I proposed we add all helper to ApplicationController so these bugs never happen again.

Felix merged this into master already.
