The bug described here(http://dev.rubyonrails.org/ticket/1125) is biting
me hard at the moment, contrary to that ticket’s assertion that the bug
has been squashed.
For those without time to read the ticket, collection_select does not
support the :selected method, apparently because it uses
to_collection_select_tag instead of to_select_tag. Moreover, because of
this or some other deficiency, collection_select does not automatically
select the existing value when I move from my “new” view to my “edit”
question = “How?”
elsif !self.can_fix_in_view_code? and self.can_override_method?
question = “How do I override to_collection_select_tag?”
question = “What DO I do to fix collection_select?”
Thanks in advance,
