Topic: New To Rails

I am new to Ruby On Rails.

I have scaffolded a few screens for a website's administration pages. 

For example, right now I have (etc., etc.):

admin/companies
admin/regions
admin/countries

I am going back and editing the scaffolded screens.

I need to know how to add a dropdown list to the admin\regions\_form.html.erb page that would show the countries I have added using admin/countries/new.

Re: New To Rails

Try something like this

      <%= f.select(:country_id, Country.all.map{|c|["#{c.id}. #{c.name} - #{c.name}", c.id] } ) %>

See here for more details http://api.rubyonrails.org/classes/Acti … elper.html

What you want and what you need are too often not the same thing!
When your head is hurting from trying to solve a problem, stop standing on it. When you are the right way up you will see the problem differently and you just might find the solution.
