I hate that :slight_smile: It gets you in the views.

.to_s is your friend.

<%= @tech_standard.category + " " + @tech_standard.point.to_s + “.” +
@tech_standard.subpoint.to_s %>

Hi,

You shouldn’t even need to use to_s if you print it as a string to start
with.
<%= “This is a string with vars in it: #{@tech_standard.category}
#{@tech_standard.point} #{@tech_standard.subpoint}” %>

Bah, thats all old school stuff, and I cringe at its site…try this!
:slight_smile:

<%= “#{@tech_standard.category}
#{@tech_standard.point}.#{@tech_standard.subpoint }” %>

Ahhh…thats better! And no need for any to_s methods on the way…and
this is all pure Ruby, no Rails magic here.
