content_tag_for(tag_name, record, *args, &block)

#content_tag_for creates an HTML element with id and class parameters that relate to the specified Active Record object. For example:

<% content_tag_for(:tr, @person) do %>
  <td><%=h @person.first_name %></td>
  <td><%=h @person.last_name %></td>
<% end %>

would produce the following HTML (assuming @person is an instance of a Person object, with an id value of 123):

<tr id="person_123" class="person">....</tr>

If you require the HTML id attribute to have a prefix, you can specify it:

<% content_tag_for(:tr, @person, :foo) do %> ...

produces:

<tr id="foo_person_123" class="person">...

#content_tag_for also accepts a hash of options, which will be converted to additional HTML attributes. If you specify a :classvalue, it will be combined with the default class name for your object. For example:

<% content_tag_for(:li, @person, :class => "bar") %>...

produces:

<li id="person_123" class="person bar">...

  prefix  = args.first.is_a?(Hash) ? nil : args.shift
  options = args.extract_options!
  options.merge!({ :class => "#{dom_class(record)} #{options[:class]}".strip, :id => dom_id(record, prefix) })
  content_tag(tag_name, options, &block)
end
div_for(record, *args, &block)

Produces a wrapper DIV element with id and class parameters that relate to the specified Active Record object. Usage example:

<% div_for(@person, :class => "foo") do %>
   <%=h @person.name %>
<% end %>

produces:

<div id="person_123" class="person foo"> Joe Bloggs </div>
