Description

Normally, it is difficult to style inputs without adding classes to them so that you can specify css for each type of input. Since this can become a tedious manual task, styled_inputs automatically adds a classes to each input that is generated either by tag or form helpers. The class that is specified is the type of input being generated.

Usage

Tags

text_field_tag('name')    # => <input class="text" id="name" name="name" type="text" />
hidden_field_tag('name')  # => <input class="hidden" id="name" name="name" type="hidden" />

Form helpers

text_field(:person, :name)    # => <input class="text" id="person_name" name="person[name]" size="30" type="text" />
hidden_field(:person, :name)  # => <input class="hidden" id="person_name" name="person[name]" type="hidden" />
