I've been trying to solve this for the last few hours and I have something that is working now but I'm curious if there isn't a better 'right' way to do it since this seems a bit of a cludge to me, but I haven't find a better way to make it work. The models are as follows: Goals, which have multiple objectives. Goals also have multiple evaluations of those objectives through status models. So, I'm trying to create a form for doing the evaluations, which ideally would allow you to set the status of all objectives in a single view. My view looks like this (trimmed down a bit for easier posting): <% for objective in @goal.objectives %> <label for="status<%= objective.number %>_status">Status:</label> <%= text_field 'status' + objective.number.to_s, 'status' %> <%= hidden_field 'status' + objective.number.to_s, 'objective_id', :value => objective.id %> <% end %> <label for="evaluation_date"> Evaluation Date:</label> <%= date_select 'evaluation', 'evaldate', :order => [:day, :month, :year ] %> <label for="evaluation_comment"> Comments:</label> <%= text_area 'evaluation', 'comment' %> This produces a set of 'status' objects like status1, status2, status3 in params, which I then loop through again in the create function in my evaluations controller: def create @evaluation = Evaluation.new(params[:evaluation]) @goal = Goal.find_by_id(params[:goal_id]) if @evaluation.save for objective in @goal.objectives @evaluation.statuses.create(params['status' + objective.number.to_s]) end flash[:notice] = 'Evaluation was successfully created.' redirect_to :action => 'show', :controller => 'goals', :id => @goal else render :action => 'new' end end So, this works fine, but I'm curious if there is a better way to do this.
