- We discovered why a Flash widget was reloading itself: changes the CSS
positionvalue. We were hiding the Flash widget by moving it’s containing
divoff the page with
position: absolute; left: -9000, and removing the class that had those values to show it again. It turns out that changing that
positionvalue causes the Flash to reload. By keeping the
position:absolutesetting when we both show and hide our container div, the Flash no longer reloads.

“When using Rails’s date_select helper, is there a corresponding helper method to turn that date format into a Date object in the controller?”
Some Snippets are available, but how about a Rails built-in solution?
