Ruby Question

Where to put Ruby helper methods for Rails controllers?

I have some Ruby methods certain (or all) controllers need. I tried putting them in

/app/helpers/application_helper.rb
. I've used that for methods to be used in views. But controllers don't see those methods. Is there another place I should put them or do I need to access those helper methods differently?

Using latest stable Rails.

Answer

You should define the method inside ApplicationController.
