Undefined method exists? for Draper::CollectionDecorator

I am trying to implement the Draper gem for my Rails project and having trouble getting it to work. I'm getting the error message:
undefined method `exists?' for #Draper::CollectionDecorator:0x000055b625da7a10>
The error seems to be coming up from a partial I'm rendering on my index view. The partial is calling "@accounts.exists?" which is where the error is happening. If I remove the call to the partial my decorator works fine. I have a feeling I need to use a delegate command for this but I'm not sure. I am fairly new to Rails and just starting to explore some of the helpful gems out there. I'm hoping someone could take a look at my code and point me in the right direction to get past this error. Thanks! :)

I am not familiar with the draper gem, but you are attempting to call exists? on what looks like a collection of objects, not on an ActiveRecord object. And since exists? is defined in ActiveRecord, you're not going to be able to do that.

You can probably safely change this line:
Mã:
<% if !@accounts.exists? then %>
to:
Mã:
<% if @accounts.empty? then %>
The .empty? method is defined in multiple places, but the gist of it is if an object like a collection is empty then it will return true.

Wow, I changed my code and it works perfectly now. I've been stumped on this for hours, so now I have a follow up question.
