Hi, first time posting here. I’m in the process of learning ruby and the
rails framework and i’ve come to a road block. I started off by using
the Onlamp tutorial online and got a test database and all of the
generated scaffold pages. I am currently working on a drop down box
using the select tag. I figured out how to get values from a ‘name’
column in my Test table, i’m using mysql for database access.
The problem i’m stuck at now is that I want to be able to select a name
from the list and click a button and have it forward to the ‘show.rhtml’
page for the selected name. I’m trying to reformat the ‘list.rhtml’
page that was created by the scaffold generator, so that there is only
this drop down box, instead of having all the rows in the table show up
with all the columns and data.
If anyone can help me that would be great. i’ve googled all day and
found no examples to help me with this.
