Question about undefined method

I was wondering if someone could help me with an error i am getting

undefined local variable or method `first’ for KeyWord:Class

i thought i had the method declared
in my key_word.rb model i have this:

def self.get_in_wet_list(status)
wet_list = @message.find(first, :conditions => "name =
‘wet_list’ ")

the code in the view that calls it is this:

<%= %> 9: 10: <%= site.sensor.page_value %> 11: 12: 13:

don’t know what i am missing or declaring wrong here.


ok, that got me further, apparently that was not the only thing wrong.
i got this:

You have a nil object when you didn’t expect it!
You might have expected an instance of Array.
The error occured while evaluating nil.find

the table key_words looks like this
id int(11) , name varchar(20) , message varchar(30)
what i am trying to do in the key_word.rb model is get the value of
message when the name = ‘wet_list’ . There should only be one ( why
i tried first )

i think i am confused about how to set this as a value.


    wet_list = @message.find(first, :conditions => "name =

That should be :first not first
