render_to_string(options = nil, &block) protected

Renders according to the same rules as render, but returns the result in a string instead of sending it as the response body to the browser.

No Layout, other options

While it renders to the same rules as render, you need to specify params.

You’d think this would work:

render_to_string "users/profile", :layout => false

You need to do this instead

render_to_string(:layout => "users/profile", :layout => false)

No Layout (fixed typo)

@wiseleyb: Seems to be a typo, should be:

render_to_string(:action => "users/profile", :layout => false)
