I need a page that will ask for initial and final
this would be a form page, so it would be a view. It would
go in the view folder. You could have an action getdates
in controller which automatically will call getdates.rhtml
in the view folder.
You will get the info from this page in the params. Look up
render to look at the param hash.
The controller can then select all the data, and go to
another view page, show.rhtml.
Hey Anne ! Thanks for the links !
I think after a while, you don’t use scaffold at all… at least I don’t
You just start building your application page by page, action by action,
component by component… etc.
I think scaffold is just a “ooooooo look what rails can do” type thing
get’s people started.
I think… or I may be missing an amazing feature and I’m wasting a lot
time… but, I don’t think so
Now that I am starting to understand, I will certainly never use scaffold,
Well, there’s no harm in using the scaffold generator to put the
basics in place before fleshing them out yourself. I still use them,
it’s useful for getting stuff up and running as quick as possible.
Soon though, I’m planning to develop my own customised engines to
implement the kind of stuff I need on almost every website - news
link pages, standard contact forms and so on. Might as well practise
between projects, as well as in them…
