Multiple models


#1

I have the below models

UserTable:

name
email:
login:
password
salt

CategoryTable:
name
[model]
has_many :books

AutherTable:
Name
[model]
has_many :books

PublisherTable:
name
[model]
has_many :books

StorageTable:
name
[model]
has_many :books

name
Book_Table:
name
isbn
description
category_id
publisher_id
auther_id
storage_id
[model]
belongs_to :storage
belongs_to :auther
belongs_to :publisher
belongs_to category

My problem is on however to have multiple models in one view. I was
able to use form_tag togather data form all models except book. How
could I get this resolved is my concern? I know that this is a new
bie’s kind of question, but I crave for your understand.

You’ll want to look at fields_for. Watch the “Complex Forms” trilogy
of Railscasts from a couple years ago.

Have it already but I am still not able to get my head around it.

exactly what are you missing.
What is your problem.
A form problem is a very broad formulation…

read and do this introductions.
As you can see, when you create a book, you collect the ids form the
other models, and then save them in the book model.

if request.post?
@author = Author.new(params[:author_name])
@publisher = Publisher.check_this(params[:publisher_name])
@category = Category.check_this(params[:category_name])
@storage = Storage.check_this(params[:storage_name])

end

That’s my code for other models and it worked. How do I add @author
into book class as arguments.

This is what I am missing, how to include the ids of the models that
“has_many” of book model while saving. How to make four ids along with
the
book data.
