append_around_filter

Importance_3
append_around_filter(*filters, &block) public

If you append_around_filter A.new, B.new, the filter chain looks like

  B#before
    A#before
      # run the action
    A#after
  B#after

With around filters which yield to the action block, before and after are the code before and after the yield.

More detailed, working example of usage:

  around_filter do |controller, action|
    logger.info "code block before action"
    action.call
    logger.info "code block after action"
  end

  def index
    logger.info "ACTION"
  end       

  private # filters should not be available for external URL

  def action1            
    logger.info "ACTION1 before yield"
    yield "ACTION1" 
    logger.info "ACTION1 after yield"
  end

  def action2            
    logger.info "ACTION2 before yield"
    yield "ACTION2"
