Response to: access from controller for :searchtext

I was having a little trouble getting this to work too...so I added in a VERY generic test...ad in


render_text @params.inspect


This will show you all the fields you can access via the params ... you'll probably notice that the searchtext isn't listed, but rather the value you entered is being put there (at least that was my case) ... using the :with => "'searchtext='+value" mentioned above solved my problem ... but I thought it was worth mentioning this simple debugging approach for params
