I’ve got an app that displays events information, the index page lists
events in a fairly basic table with date, name, and options to edit /
delete. I’d like to display checkboxes for each row of the table, so
that a user can check multiple rows of the table, and edit the
attributes of multiple events with one click. I think the index page has
to be a form, but i’m not sure how I should structure the view, and how
I can create check boxes that correspond to attributes of the events
being displayed, currently the view looks like this:
|Date||Image||Event Name||Band Name||Venue||Description|
|<%= event.eventDate.to_formatted_s(:short) %>||<%=h image_tag event.photo.url(:thumb) %>||<%=h event.eventName %>||<%=h event.bandName %>||<%=h event.venue %>||<%=h event.description %>||<%= link_to 'Show', event %>||<%= link_to "Edit", polymorphic_path(event, :action => :edit) %>||<%= link_to "Delete", event, :method => :delete, :confirm => 'Are you sure?', :title => "Delete Event" %>|
would the <%= form_for %> start and end tags include the whole table?
if so, the what instance variable would be in the form_for line
<%= form_for @??? ?
I’m just not sure, conceptually, how to go about making a form to edit
the attributes of multiple object.
Thanks in advance!
