Formatting form post to work with MyClass.new(params[:my_cla

So,

In my html page I have a simple (non rails generated) html for that
posts to the server via an ajax call using prototype’s form.serialize.
It used to post to an asp.net page, but now I want it to post to my
rails controller. This is what I have:

@my_class = MyClass.new(params[:my_class])

I don’t want to have to set each property of MyClass one-by-one, I
want to do what the above code shows. I want to pass all the necessary
values to the MyClass constructor.

How can I translate my html form values to do this?

For it do do this your form inputs need to be named

name=“mycalss[fieldname]”

Then it will work like you want. If you can’t have everything named
like
that, you’ll need to do it manually.
