on rails to convert my figures in to “£”. I have this function in my
show.rhtml which is:

Price: <%= number_to_currency(@sale.price,
{:unit => “£”, :separator => “.”, :delimiter => “,”}) %>

<% end %>

as £0.00 etc but i have used scaffold to create this and I am only new
to rails so i need help to use the above code in list.rhtml, here is the
list.rhtml code can some one please help me and place the code some
where here to make it work many thanks nish…

<%= link_to ‘Previous page’, { :page => @sale_pages.current.previous }
if @sale_pages.current.previous %>

Assuming that you’re very early in the process (and that you’re using
Rails 1.2.x), I’d suggest that you redo the generation with
scaffold_resource (which is what you’ll get under the name ‘scaffold’
in Rails 2 anyway).

Usage: script/generate scaffold_resource ModelName [field:type,

script/generate scaffold_resource Sale sku:string qty:integer
‘price:decimal(8,2)’ taxable:boolean

(of course, I’m just guessing at some possible column names and types)

This will start you out with a static set of views with individual
columns rather than the dynamic ones based on Sale.content_columns.
It will be much easier to see how to proceed.
