Ruby on Rails drop down help

Hi, I have a really simple problem with ruby on rails. Using a basic
tutorial and scaffolding I have a form with lines like this:

Game 1: <%= Game.find('1').game %>
<%= text_field 'user', 'game_1' %>

and I want to change it from a text field to a drop down menu with
three hardcoded values (“Home”, “Away” and “Draw”).

If someone could help me out that’d be great.
Thanks,
Craig

select ‘user’, ‘game_1’, %w(Home Away Draw)
should do the trick.

You may or may not want include_blank

See
