hi all,

i have a form with several datas given by the user : name, adress , tel
etc...
When the user press "create" i call an action called "create_stagiaire"
which create his account but i also want to feed another table named
"demandes" where which i feed with a date given by the user. In my form
this date field is writen like this :
<%= date_select 'demande', 'dr'%>

No problem and here is the action :

  def create_stagiaire
     @stagiaire = Stagiaire.new(params[:stagiaire])
    if @stagiaire.save
       @stagiaire.demandes.create(params[:dr])
      flash[:notice] = 'Stagiaire was successfully created.'
      redirect_to :action => 'list'
    else
      render :action => 'new'
    end

My probleme is that, it creates an entry in the "stagiaires" table with
no problem, but not in the "demandes" table :(

here the error : Mysql::Error: #23000Column 'dr' cannot be null: INSERT
INTO demandes (`dr`, `type`, `stagiaire_id`) VALUES(NULL, '', 13)

i supposed that i did something wrong near :
@stagiaire.demandes.create(params[:dr]) thks

wouldn't it be:

@stagiaire.demandes.create(params[:demande])
