I am building a site that uses a vertically split window.
I want to show view A in the left side of the split and view B in the right side of the split.
Is there a way to direct, from within a controller, which side (view A or B) the view gets rendered in or do I have to statically define, from within the template which view gets rendered in each side?
You could do something like this.
defmodule MyApp.FooController do
def index(conn, params) do
render("split.html", left: MyApp.AView, right: MyApp.BView)
In your view you would have something like
<div class="col-lg-6" id="left_split">
<%= render(@left, "left.html", assigns) %>
<div class="col-lg-6" id="right_split">
<%= render(@right, "right.html", assigns) %>
Obviously you would need to have a corresponding left and right templates.
DUH! Why didn’t I think of that!!! It’s so obvious!!!
