Saving form fields not working

I have a form on a page add_flight.rhtml -
<%=form_tag({:controller=>“local_flights”,:action=>“shared”},
{:id=>“add_flight”, :method=>“post”})%>

<%=submit_tag(“Add your Flight Request”)%>

Then,* in controller - *
def shared
_flt = params[:fltAvailable]
if !_flt.blank?
@flt = SharedLocalFlight.new(_flt)
@flt.save
end
@fltSharedList = SharedLocalFlight.find(:all)
end

This seems to be getting called and then shared.rhtml gets rendered

However, record doesn’t get saved to table. There is no error msg in
development.log.

Any ideas on what I am missing here?

Please help.

Thanks,

I think the problem is with

params[:fltAvailable]

where did you come up with this?

may I suggest (temporarily) replacing shared with this:

def shared
render :text => params.to_yaml
end

and then looking at your html source. It’ll show you what the params
key SHOULD be.

By the way, this question should be asked of the rails list, not the
ruby one.
