Select box with multiple rows


#1

I want a select box that displays 5 rows instead of one row and a drop
down.
so i figure this should work, but it doesn’t.

<%= collection_select(:constellation, :region_id, @regions, :id, :name,
html_options = {:size => ‘5’})%>

I am not quite sure how to use that html_options and googling around I
didnt
find anything directly on point.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Mike

Try

collection_select(
:constellation,
:region_id,
@regions,
:id,
:name,
nil,
{
:multiple => true,
:size => 5
}
)
