Proper syntax for text field (less garbled)

I’m almost there… if someone could please help me :slight_smile:

OK, if I have this in my .html.erb:

<%= button_to “Add to Cart” , :action => ‘add_to_cart’, :id =>
item, :amount => 3 %>

I get proper behavior. But I’m trying to figure out how to wire up a
text field for :amount

<%= text_field_tag ‘$’, @amount %>


<%= button_to “Add to Cart” , :action => ‘add_to_cart’, :id =>
item, :amount => @amount %>

Doesn’t work. Does anybody have an idea of what would?

add_to_cart is now working with

def add_to_cart
item = Item.find( params[ :id ] )
@cart = find_cart
@cart.add_item( item, params[ :amount ] )
end

Can anyone help??

Many TIA,
Craig

You need a form. What button_to does is create a form containing just
a button, whereas you need a form containing both the textfield and
the submit button
