I’m confused at the following problem: I’m trying to use a link_to to
call a controller/view from itself. Basically, history_console.rhtml
calls its controller in the link_to, and based on the value of the
select_id it will display different things.
But with the following code, history_console.rhtml will get a select_id,
but not a specific value of 1 (so if in the controller I say @select_id
= 1 it works). So it cannot differentiate what to display.
This code is in history_console.rhtml:
<%= link_to ‘Client’, :action => ‘history_console’, :select_id => 1 %>
This is in the relevant controller:
@select_id = (params[:select_id])
@clients = Client.find(:all)
And this is (again) in history_consle.rhtml
<% if @select_id == 1 %>
<%= render_partial ‘clientselect’ %>
<% end %>
And the URL appears with history_console?select_id=1
The problem is that the value of select_id in the controller is not 1,
and I don’t know why or what it really is.
What am I missing? How do I handle variables in this fashion?
