Querying using Ruby on Rails


#1

Hi Everyone…

I’need to query using Ruby on rails…dynamically rather than hard
coding the
statement like:
select* from authors where name=“Hello”;

i need to get the value of the name from a text box in the earlier page
and transfer the value to the next page and have a statement like

select * from author where name=" #{@username}"

similar to this so tat my search could be dynamic …

i’ve tried with find_by_sql… but don’t know which file i need to add
the code…

Thanks & Regards

Hey,

In Rails you rarely need to use find_by_sql.

You can easily do things like this with
Author.find_by_name(username)

Why don’t read a bit more about ActiveRecord and Rails in general?

Cheers,
Yuri

Or…

Author.find(:all, :conditions => {:username => @username })
replace :all, for :first if needed.
