Auto_complete vs select_tag

hi,

i have 2 models and 1 join_table:

film.rb

has_many :joins, :dependent => :destroy
has_many :people, :through => :joins

person.rb

has_many :joins, :dependent => :destroy
has_many :films, :through => :joins

join.rb

belongs_to: film
belongs_to: person

in views/films/ _form.rhtml

<%- f.fields_for :joins do |builder| %>
<%= render “films/join_fields”, :f => builder %>
<%- end %>

in the partial join_fields.rhtml :

<%= f.select :person_id, options_for_select(Person.all(:order=> ‘name
asc’).map {|p| [p.name, p.id]}, f.object.person_id)%>

<%= f.hidden_field :_destroy %>
<%= link_to_function “delete”, “remove_fields(this)” %>

I would like to change f.select ( because there is a lot of records ) by
auto-completion

any idea ?

thanks!

use jquery autocomplete. http://docs.jquery.com/Plugins/autocomplete

http://docs.jquery.com/Plugins/autocompletesidenote: don’t use joins
as an
association name because it’s an argument for the find method.
