Default value for country_select

Using Country_select how to have default valur set to United States.

I have a select drop down in my Ui to display the Country names.

But i need United tates to be selected as default value.

I use country_select to populate the country names.

This is how i use <%= f.country_select :country, :selected=>‘United
States’ %>
i also tried
<%= f.country_select :country, :priority_countries=>‘United States’ %>

Do help me out to fix this…

Thanks in advance

Thanks for the reply ebrad

I Used as this

<%= form.country_select :billing_country, [“United States”] %>, its
working…

BUT,

This is adding a option extra in the top as United states, the same
happened to me when i used the other two options which i mentioned
earlier…

Is it possible to show the United States in the list selected as
default.

Thank u Ryan I implemented in the same way as u both suggested…

Hi,

If you want to use the ‘selected’ option instead of putting it as a
priority country, you could try this

<%= form.country_select :billing_country, [], {:selected => “United
States”} %>

I don’t know for sure, but I think you can pass in an option:
:selected => code where code is the country code.

I know this is a few years old but just in case it helps anyone, you can
use :prompt => true to add a ‘please select’ default option
