Setting a value of text_field from a controller

Hi,

I need to set up an initial value from controller. In my views I’ve
something like
<%= text_field “object”, “name” %>

and would like to do something like this from controller

def index
@object[:name] = ‘default value’
end

but still got an error. Object doesn’t have database model (and will not
have)

Thank you

PS: now using <%= text_field_tag “object_name”, @object_value %> and
setting in as @object_value = ‘something’, but is not so elegant…

Have you tried?

def index
@object = Object.new
@object.name = ‘default value’

end

Sure, but got error:

undefined method `name=’ for #Object:0x333c1a0

with
def index
@sometest = Object.new
@sometest.name = ‘testname’
end

and you’ve done attr_accessor :name or some equivalent in the class
definition?
