i have an array
@item = [ [name1, value1] [name2, value2] [name3, value4] ] which
comes from the controller
i want to put this into a drop down menu where the item chosen goes
i also need to go back to the same form
where the same array @item is displayed but this time the item
selected ( :enter_by ) is now selected.
i don’t want to use ajax
i have read and re-read, and then made a trip to the bookstore about
select, select_tag, options_for_select
i going on 3 hours sleep in 48 hours and need this badly.
this can not be soooooo complicated.
i can get the items to display, i can return the item selected but i
can not get the selected item to show if i go back to the form.
