Adding a selected checkbox to a new nested model without polluting the model

Context:
I have a GoodsReturn model with many ReturnedItem. For the new view, I
create a new GoodsReturn with many new ReturnedItems from a sale (and
its SoldItems).
Problem:
I want to have a Add/Selected checkbox with which the user can pick
the items he wants to return. I know I could use a ‘selected’ virtual
attribute but I don’t want to pollute my model just for this. In fact,
there is something that does exactly the opposite that I want,
the :_destroy:
<%= i_f.check_box :_destroy %>
I would like exactly the opposite, :_select.

Anybody has figured this out before?

Thanks guys,

sure is simple, i will tell you what i think you are trying to say and
you
can confirm it,
you have a list of items, and you want the user to be able to make a
selection and remove them with checkboxes?
is that it?

i think i saw something similar here

http://railscasts.com/episodes/196-nested-model-form-part-1

http://railscasts.com/episodes/197-nested-model-form-part-2

it has ajax and eveything

Cool, radhames brito.

I have a list of items (all are new_record? = true) that are nested
into another new record. I want the user to make a selection and ADD
them with checkboxes, not remove. Those without checkboxes will just
be discarded and never created.

Yeah, it’s quite similar, but the example uses the _destroy facility,
I want the opposite…
Anyway, I’m using a virtual attribute in the meantime…

oh i see, you can handle the way the hash is passed so that you can loop
true the params and check for the selected one, then
only save the selected ones , i did something similar. You can handle
the
hash by adding [] to the field names in the for helper.
for example addin :value[whatever][] associates the items and puts
then
in an array in the params hash
