I searched this forum and found plenty of people having this problem,
but I didn’t see any definitive solution. Usings Rails 1.0.
When I edit an existing record, I can’t get the basic “select” helper to
display the current value contained in the field of the record. All of
my other (text) fields populate correctly with current field values.
There appears to be a “:selected =>” option with the select helper and
some of its variations, but I can’t get it to work. Frankly, I thought
it would simply “work”, in the same way that text fields get populated
Am I doing something wrong, is the select helper broken, or is it simply
not supposed to display the current value when editing?
