My first ROR app is coming along nicely. This is definately a agile
One of my last issues before inhouse deployment is creating pulldown
entries on the fly.
In particular, I’m writing a job tracking app for my company. We
mostly do jobs for the same customers (law firms), so I have a pull
down of law firms which is populated from a law_firms table. i.e
assume only 2 tables for now: jobs and law firms.
On the jobs new/edit form I want to have the ability to setup a new
client law firm if they don’t already exist.
Is there a standard way to do this?
I’ve created a “verify law firm” button that calls the :controller =>
law_firm, :action => list method. From there I don’t have a nice way
to get back to the job new/edit form.
I guess I could put a link back to the form, but any data entry
already done would be lost.
