Sending multiple checkboxes values clicking a link


#1

Hi,
I have multiple checkboxes in a table each one representing an item.
They are like this:

[…]

<%= check_box "incidencias_ids", incidencia.id %> <%=h incidencia.cliente.nombre %> [...]

In the controller I have:

incidencias_ids = params[:incidencias_ids]
@incidencias = []
for id in incidencias_ids
  @incidencias << Incidencia.find_by_id(id)
end

I think this is enough to send all the checked checkboxes and manipulate
them.
But I don’t know how to send all the checkboxes to the controller! I
know how to do it with link_to_remote but the answer is not displayed…

How I can do this with link_to? Another way?

Try check_box_tag “incidencias_ids[]”, incidencia.id

There’s more about why this works (ie what the [] are about) in the
guide on form helpers at guides.rubyonrails.org.
