Passing parameter from a dropdown

Hello,

I have a dropdown in the UI. There are many oprions.
How do I send the parameter from the dropdown - the selected value to
the
controller?

I have tried :-

  1. <%= select_tag ‘name’, options_for_select(@list, :selected) %>
  2. <%= select(“audit”, “value”,options_for_select([[“User Registration”,
    “USER_REGISTRATION”], [“Download”, “USER_REPORT”]], :selected =>
    params[:value]) %>

I am not getting any parameters passed to the controller.

make sure that the select tag above is part of the form you are
submitting
and that you
are actually submitting to the right action. A quick look on your code
raised no issues.

I am not adding any form because there is no model for this page.
Only there is controller and view.

you need to add a form to pass the selected values to the controller.
It
doesn’t
matter whether you’re accessing a model or not.

Somehow I did manage to pass the parameter from the dropdown to
controller.
But the problem is here - I am getting it as string.

In Controller:----

class ReportController < ApplicationController

REPORT1 = “type =?”, “Box”
REPORT2 = “action = ? and type =?”, “create”, “Square”

def report
param = params[:audit_report] // How to convert this string to an
object
or static variable ? Or what is the best way to do it ?
@report_data =
(Audited::Adapters::ActiveRecord::Audit.where(param))
// If I am passing this param, it comes as a string not as static
varaible
in this controller.
end

end

In View :----

<%= select_tag “reports_name”, options_for_select([[“User1”, “REPORT1”],
[“User2”, “REPORT2”]]), :onchange =>“audit_options(this.value)” %>

You should read on action controller basics. And also on debugging using
pry or debugger so you can experiment on what you want to achieve. Good
luck!
