Getting data from the select menu

I am using a select menu to allow people to pick an item and be taken to
a new page containing that item’s data. Pretty straightforward stuff.
Except that I cannot quite figure out how to do this in Rails.

I do not understand how to grab the variable from the select menu.

Any suggestions?

Hi Ricardo,

I am using a select menu to allow people to pick
an item and be taken to a new page containing that
item’s data. Pretty straightforward stuff. Except that
I cannot quite figure out how to do this in Rails.

I do not understand how to grab the variable from the
select menu.

It comes to the controller action in the params hash when the form’s
submitted, just like a text_field’s value does. Nothing special.

hth,

model from this example

PLEASE CHOOSE DATAFIELD <% @objects.each do |object| %> " > <%= @object.dataField %> <%end%>
