Hi I have nested resources i.e. projects which have many tasks and a
task belongs to a project.
In my project show view I show project info i.e. title and description
and then list all the tasks associated with it.
<% form_for @project, :url => @project, :method => “PUT” do |form| %>
<% fields_for @project.tasks.first do |task|%>
Task: <%= task.text_field :title %>
<% end %>
<%= submit_tag "Add Task", :class => "submit" %><% end %>
In the controller i have this
@project = Project.find(params[:id])
#create an empty task for the form
Since ive created an empty task for @project, this shows up in my list
of tasks when it shouldnt. I know i could check all tasks in the view to
see if they are actually records with .new_record? but thats adding code
to the view and i feel there must be a much better solution to this?
I also dont like this <% fields_for @project.tasks.first do |task|%> as
the .first implies im dealing with many empty tasks waiting to be
created when in fact there will only be one - is there a better
workaroudn for this as well?
