Paginating_find Help anyone

Hello - I am using paginating_find trying to paginate my records My
CallsController index action is

def index
@calls = @current_user.calls.find(:all, :page => {:size =>
4, :current => params[:page]})

then in the index template for the calls view I have

    <% @current_user.calls.each do |call| %>
  1. <%= link_to h(, :action => 'show', :id => call %>
  2. <% end %>
<%= @calls %> <%= paginating_links(@calls) %>

I only have the <%= @calls %> to see what is in the @calls variable
to see if it is available to paginating_find but it isn’t. The loop gives links to all the current_user’s calls but I get no
paginating. I would like 4 per page. If I change the loop to
@calls.each do I get calls for all the users which is not what I want
and if I change the paginating_links to
paginating_links(@current_user.calls) I get the following error

undefined method `page’ for #Class:0x251dacc

Extracted source (around line #16):

13: <% end %>
15: <%= @calls %>
16: <%= paginating_links(@current_user.calls) %>
So my paginating_links is getting nothing to paginate from what I can
see althoug it doew list pages 1 and 2 as links
Any help out there please


So the problem is that @calls is not scoped to the @current_user?

Thank you so much for your reply Alexkwolf. Thants how I see it also
When I change the line before <%=
paginating_links(@current_users.calls) %>
to <%= @current_user.calls %> just to see what is in the variable i
get the following


            <li><a href="/calls/142">Vanessa</a></li>

            <li><a href="/calls/168">Linnea</a></li>

            <li><a href="/calls/169">Richard</a></li>

            <li><a href="/calls/170">Linea</a></li>

            <li><a href="/calls/171">Mark</a></li>

            <li><a href="/calls/172">My friend</a></li>

            <li><a href="/calls/173">Melvin</a></li>

            <li><a href="/calls/174">Tuesday</a></li>

            <li><a href="/calls/175">Tony lynn</a></li>

            <li><a href="/calls/176">Lyn Lyn</a></li>

            <li><a href="/calls/177">Marjorie</a></li>



    1 <a href="/calls?page=2">2</a> <a href="/calls?page=3">3</a>

   and if I change the line before to just <%= @calls %> i get

this avter the loop output

    1 <a href="/calls?page=2">2</a> <a href="/calls?page=3">3</a>

So I am not sure what is happening allthough both times I get this
interesting output of numbers. Any idea would be greatly appreciated

I think I may have figured it out
In my index.rhtml for app/views/calls I tried this code

<% @recent_calls = @current_user.calls.find(:all, :page => {:size

=> 4, :current => params[:page]}) %>

        <% @recent_calls.each do |c| %>
            <li><%= link_to h(, :action => 'show', :id => %>
<% end %>

<%= paginating_links(@recent_calls) %>

and it gave me only the 10 calls associated with the current_user so I
have to try a few more things
and I want to have a previous link and a next link so I don’t have to
click on the page numbers.

So thanks for the interest and help and thanks to alex wolf for the
plug in for paginating_links that works for me
