Help with multiple lists


#1

I have a problem I can’t seem to find an answer to. I have the
following relations

(contact) 1 == *(Phone) *== (Phone Type).
(contact) 1 == 1 (Address)

I will be constructing an AJAX interface that allows user to add
multiple rows to the contact. As such, I want to make it possible to
get them from the request. I have the following for contact and
address, which works

@company_contact = CompanyContact.new(params[:company_contact])
@address = Address.new(params[:address])
@company = Company.find(params[:company])

@company_contact.company = @company
@company_contact = @address

#TODO phones.

How do I get the phones to work? I’ve tried the following.

@phones = Phone.new(params[:phones])

but it doesn’t return anything, just nill. My embedded form looks
like this.

Phones

<% for phone in @phones do%> <% end %>
Number: <%= text_field("phone" , "number") %> <%= get_phone_types %>

and my call to the template looks like this

<%= render (:partial => “shared/formphone”, :object => @phones =
@company_contact.phone()) %>

When I look at the HTML it just generates the following

As you can see, all the input fields are the same. Is there a way I
can make them unique, as well as easily get them from the request?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

thanks,
Todd
