Hi I have the following date select box <%= date_select 'min', 'min' %> When you submit a date, it re-loads the page with the same date select box, but displays todays date, no matter what you submitted before. How can I get it to re load with the submitted date. Thanks Scott

The first argument is object and the second one is method. If you have defined an instance variable object which matches what you put in the date_select argument for object which has a method matching what you put for method then the date_select parts will take that value when the page loads. Create a sample rails app and check out the edit page. It uses dates there and gets them to autopopulate.

still a bit unsure on what you mean here the date select returns values in an array with 3 values params['max']['max(1i)'] ,2i and 3i but I have been unable to create an array with these names, the key seems to want an int and not a string, any suggestions? or am I on the wrong path all toggether?
