hi all

this works

   <%= render :partial => "admin/works/work", :collection =>
@artist.works %>

but this doesn't

   <%= render :partial => "admin/works/worklist", :collection =>
@artist.works %>


even though the partial _work.rhtml and _worklist.rhtml are identical.

worklist.rhtml throws

   undefined local variable or method `work'
    Extracted source (around line #2):

    1: <tr>
    2:   <td><%= link_to work.short_title, :action => 'edit', :id =>
work %></td>

any ideas why?

TIA DLG

but i'm still struggling with http://www.ruby-forum.com/topic/63930 if
anyone's feeling super-generous.

cheers

Partials generate parameter objects based on their names - you need:

    1: <tr>
    2:   <td><%= link_to worklist.short_title, :action => 'edit', :id =>
worklist %></td>

The local variable in the partial is named after the partial. Change it
to:

<%= link_to worklist.short_title, :action => 'edit', :id => worklist %>
