Newbie doubt in links and controllers

Hi all, I’ve the following doubt.

I’ve this controller methods:
def set_elaborator
@entry = Entry.find(params[:id])
@entry.geomatics_elaboration_id = current_user.id
if @entry.save!
redirect_to(@entry, :notice => ‘Elaborator setted successfully’)
end
end

def set_reviewer
@entry = Entry.find(params[:id])
@entry.geomatics_checker_id = current_user.id
if @entry.save!
redirect_to(@entry, :notice => ‘Elaborator setted successfully’)
end
end

So, I want to add a link in the show view, like this:

<%= t('entries.fields.geomatics_elaboration') %>: <% if @entry.geomatics_elaboration_id.nil? and current_user.geomatics %> <%= link_to entry, :confirm => 'Are you sure?', :method => :set_elaborator do %> <% end %> <% elsif @entry.geomatics_elaboration_id.nil? and not current_user.geomatics %> <%= t('entries.messages.not_assigned_yet') %> <% else %> <%= User.find(@entry.geomatics_elaboration_id).fullname %> <% end %>

<%= t('entries.fields.geomatics_review') %>: <% if @entry.geomatics_checker_id.nil? and current_user.geomatics %> <%= link_to @entry, :confirm => 'Are you sure?', :method => :set_reviewer do %> <% end %> <% elsif @entry.geomatics_checker_id.nil? and not current_user.geomatics %> <%= t('entries.messages.not_assigned_yet') %> <% else %> <%= User.find(@entry.geomatics_checker_id).fullname %> <% end %>

I want to, when I click the link update the @entry and load the show
template with the changes…

Any suggestion?

This should be save, not save!. save! generates an exception if it
fails rather than returning false.

So, I want to add a link in the show view, like this:
<%= t(‘entries.messages.not_assigned_yet’) %>
<% end %>
<% elsif @entry.geomatics_checker_id.nil? and not current_user.geomatics
%>
<%= t(‘entries.messages.not_assigned_yet’) %>

<%= User.find(@entry.geomatics_checker_id).fullname %>

You have shown much too much detail and made the question too
complicated. Extract the fundamental question and demonstrate the
problem with a few lines of code if necessary.

Ok Let’s try:

I want to update a especific field from a show view when I click the
“Set
reviewer” link (assigning the current user ID), reload the same view and
see
the changes.

Fields:
*Entry.geomatics_checker_id
*User.id.

I hope you can upderstand now. (Sorry for my bad english :confused: )

Method (in this context) refers to an http method, i.e. get,post,put and
so on

Normally to do what you’re trying you’d add a route for that action to
config/routes.rb, and then you can call some_action_entry_path(entry) to
get the path to link to
