Hi, I'm trying to insert a string component into what was found by a find search. E.g. do a @version = Version.find("270") @path = "somestring" And I would like to stick the @path string into @version then later do a render :xml => @version in order to produce <versions> <version> <id>"270"</id> . . . <path>"somestring"</path> </version> <version/> </versions> Is this possible? The value of @path is not necessarily a result from a search in the db so I can't combine two searches via something like a find_by_sql or include.

Should be no problem. You can add an attribute to @version and it will be emitted when you render. Try it in the console. @version = Version.find(...) @version['path'] = 'somestring' @version.to_xml

Hey that's great! Simple and sweet. Can I set the type? As it stands it's coming out as type=\"NilClass\" On the flip side, can I also remove the type info? thanks On Mar 5, 6:08 pm, Martin S. <email@example.com>
