Simple refactor?

Hi,

As I continue learning to program, I am finding things I think can
probably be done in a better way. The following code seems like
something
programmers must run into all the time and I am wondering if there is a
better way to write the code in this situation (it seems very repetitive
to me). I’m having fun and trying to get better at this…

if !session[:subject_id].blank?
    @subject_id = session[:subject_id]
end

if !session[:book_id].blank?
  @book_id = session[:book_id]
end

if !session[:chapter_id].blank?
  @chapter_id = session[:chapter_id]
end

if !session[:section_id].blank?
  @section_id = session[:section_id]
end

if !session[:subsection_id].blank?
  @subsection_id = session[:subsection_id]
end

if !session[:minisection_id].blank?
  @minisection_id = session[:minisection_id]
end

Is there a better way??

Thanks…

Dave

try

[:subject_id, :book_id, :chapter_id, :section_id, :subsection_id,
:minisection_id].each do |k|
“@#{k.to_s}” = session[k] if session[k].present?
end

    @subject_id = session[:subject_id]
if !session[:section_id].blank?

Sorry – really not sure what’s supposed to be happening here –
you’re assigning to a string literal?

def set_instance_var_with_session_value variable
instance_variable_set("@#{variable.to_s}", session[variable]) if
session[variable].present?
end

and you will have a general method for this, for any symbol.

for example call set_instance_var_with_session_value(:subject_id)

it should work!
