New to Rails. Looking for some help

I have been working with Ruby on Rails for about a week.

I am trying to figure out a problem.

I have a small relational database.

resources :client do
resources :department do
resources :task
end
end

What I want is to be able to add tasks while looking a specific “show”
of a department.

/app/view/department/show.html.erb

Department:

<%= render @department %>

Tasks:

<%= render @department.tasks %>

Add a Task:

INSERT FORM HERE

now I am likely to want to move this off as a partial under the /tasks
but at a basic level how do I create this form?

In order to do this I know I have to define the create method in my
tasks controller and then create a <%= form_for … %> I am just
struggling with this.

Please help!

Thanks

Success in Rails comes most quickly to those with strong Google Fu.

rails 3 form_for nested resources

yields good results.

Thanks so much for your response. I spent a good portion of yesterday on
google trying to solve this. I was dancing around the solution. I
appreciate your help.
