Add a task to todo

hmm no i cant get something else to work

in my controller

def add_tasklist
	tasklist = Tasklist.new
	tasklist.attributes = @params["new_tasklist"]

	if tasklist.save
		redirect_to(:action => "list")
	else
		render_text"could not add"
end

in my template

New Task: <%= text_field("new_tasklist", "task") %>

my database is todo, the table is tasklist, fields are id, task, done

and i get the following error

SyntaxError in #

./script/…/config/…/app/controllers/tasklist_controller.rb:17: syntax
error

ive tried changing the tasklist to tasklists, im not quite sure what
that means why some are tasklists and some tasklist.

thanx

Can you please take your Rails questions to the Rails mailing list?

http://lists.rubyonrails.org/mailman/listinfo/rails

In general, I agree with Eric H., you need to take Rails questions
to the Rails mailing list. However, since it’s sitting right there, I
will point out the probable culprit:

            if tasklist.save
                    redirect_to(:action => "list")
            else
                    render_text"could not add"

should be

if tasklist.save
redirect_to(:action => “list”)
else
render_text “could not add”
end # <= added this

In ruby, unlike C or PHP or other languages, the if statement always
has the “end” keyword as a terminator.
