Depot app from 'Agile Web Development with Rails'

In the book 'Agile web development with Rails", the authors are building
a store-like app. At some point they add dynamic adding a product with
ajax call.

<!-- store_controller#index -->
<% form_remote_tag :url => { :action => 'add_to_cart', :id => product }
do %>
  <%= submit_tag "Add to Cart" %>
<% end %>
# store_controller.rb
def add_to_cart
product = Product.find(params[:id])
@cart = find_cart
@current_item = @cart.add_product(product)

# render xhr request
# model cart.rb / no DB table
def add_to_cart(product)
   current_item = @items.find {|item| item.product == product}
    if current_item
      current_item.increment_quantity
    else
      current_item = CartItem.new(product)
      @items << current_item
    end
    current_item
  end

Is there a way to add a text field which will represent the quantity of
the product to add in the cart ? Customer enter quantity in text field,
click Add to cart and the product and quantity is added to the
model/cart.

Thanks in advance

surely , but i warn you that that tutorial is very old, there are better
way
to do everything now.

<!-- store_controller#index -->
<% form_remote_tag :url => { :action => 'add_to_cart', :id => product }
do %>
 <%= text_field_tag :quantity%>
 <%= submit_tag "Add to Cart" %>
<% end %>
# store_controller.rb
def add_to_cart
product = Product.find(params[:id])
@cart = find_cart
@current_item = @cart.add_product(product)

# render xhr request
# model cart.rb / no DB table
def add_to_cart(product)
  current_item = @items.find {|item| item.product == product}
   if current_item
    params[:quantity].blank? ? current_item.increment_quantity :
current_item.quantity = params[:quantity]
   else
     current_item = CartItem.new(product)
     unless  params[:quantity].blank? current_item.quantity =
params[:quantity]
     @items << current_item
   end
   current_item
 end

forgot to add the ‘end’

 current_item = CartItem.new(product)
 unless  params[:quantity].blank?
 current_item.quantity = params[:quantity]

Are you saying they aren’t using the 'better ways" of doing things in
the
latest tutorial that is in their latest book for Rails 3? (Just curious

UD$53, but at amazon they have it for US$29.
