Renamed partial won't render?


#1

hi all

this works

<%= render :partial => “admin/works/work”, :collection =>
@artist.works %>

but this doesn’t

<%= render :partial => “admin/works/worklist”, :collection =>
@artist.works %>

even though the partial _work.rhtml and _worklist.rhtml are identical.

worklist.rhtml throws

undefined local variable or method `work’
Extracted source (around line #2):

1: <tr>
2:   <td><%= link_to work.short_title, :action => 'edit', :id => 

work %>

any ideas why?

TIA DLG

no worries, i figured it out

but i’m still struggling with http://www.ruby-forum.com/topic/63930 if
anyone’s feeling super-generous.

cheers

Partials generate parameter objects based on their names - you need:

1: <tr>
2:   <td><%= link_to worklist.short_title, :action => 'edit', :id =>

worklist %>

The local variable in the partial is named after the partial. Change it
to:

<%= link_to worklist.short_title, :action => ‘edit’, :id => worklist %>
