Specials relationship!?

i want to associate one model with 4 models. For example i call a first
model Spectacle and call others Hall1, Hall2, Hall3 and Hall4. All of
Halls have the same attributes: id and seat. Each Hall have 10 seats.
I want to create an spectacle on the database and associate it with any
Hall.
Problems:
How can i do this association in rails?
It is possible to do this type of association?
How can i get all of Hall’s seats through spectacle that i created?

does each hall have to be specifically designated as hallx?
and do halls exist independently of spectacle?

Assuming that halls exist independently, it sounds like having a join
table and position attributes on the join should work
spectacle
has_many :halls

spectacle_hall_join
belongs_to :hall
belongs_to :spectacle

hall
has_many :spectacles, through: spectacle_hall_join

should do the trick

if you really need to have the ability to call hallx you could add a
scope to the join
scope :position, lambda {|x| where position: x} # assumes code
calls only, if users can supply a value you will want to prevent XSS on
this

you can take this further to get exactly what you need.

Hope this helps.

Just have one halls table, with an additional field of, for example,
hall_number. Then have spectacle belongs_to hall, hall has_many
spectacles (assuming this is what you want).

It is possible to do this type of association?

To get all the seats for a spectacle, assuming that hall has_many seats
use
@spectacle.hall.seats

Thank you very much Jesse!

Thank you very much Colin. I will try that :slight_smile:

Colin i try what you tell me. It work find. Thank very much.
The next step is that: if an user choice the seat on the hall, it must
not be appear againt on the view.

I have some view like this:

<%= form_tag( riepilogo_path, method: “post”, id: “sel”) do %>

<%= hidden_field_tag "sala", params[:sala] %>

<%= hidden_field_tag “spectacle_id”, params[:spectacle_id] %>

<%= hidden_field_tag “num”, params[:num] %>

<% for posti in @postis %> <% end %>
Numero
<%= check_box_tag "posti_ids[]", posti.id %> <%=h posti.numero %>
<%= submit_tag "OK", id: "sub"%> <% end %>

controller of Postis is something like so:

class PostisController < ApplicationController
def index
@postis = Posti.where(:stato => “unchecked” , :spectacle_id =>
params[:spectacle_id] , :hall_num => params[:sala])
end

def posti_multiple
@postis = Posti.find(params[:posti_ids])

end
end

In the Posti’s model i have attributes: spectacle_id, hall_num,
seat(integer) and stato (:default => “unchecked”).

An user choice her seat on the hall. When he submit the form, seats be
load in posti_ids[]. I want to update stato of seats wich are present in
posti_ids from “unchecked” to “checked” on the database. How can do
that. Thank you very much

Please i try this:
@postis.update_column(stato: “checked”)
def posti_multiple
@postis = Posti.find(params[:posti_ids])

   @postis.update_column(stato: "checked")

end
undefined method `update_column’ for #Array:0xb7a50e8

I guess you are a beginner with rails, if so I suggest that you work
right through a good tutorial such as railstutorial.org (which is free
to use online), including doing all the exercises, so that you will
learn the basics of rails. Then you should be able to answer most of
the basic questions yourself.

What do you think the type of @postis is?

Colin

@postis is an string.

Now i see where i the problem. I fix them like so:
def posti_multiple
@postis = Posti.find(params[:posti_ids])
a=Posti.find_by(numero: params[:posti_ids])
a.update_column(:stato, “checked”)

end

When i have for example posti_ids[" any number"], one seat disappear on
the view. When i have posti_ids[“any number”, “any number”, … ], one
seat also desappear but i don’t want that. All of seat wich are choice
must be disappear. I think i can do some loop??

No it isn’t, you had
@postis = Posti.where(:stato => “unchecked” , :spectacle_id =>
params[:spectacle_id] , :hall_num => params[:sala])
so why would it be a string? The method ‘where’ returns (effectively)
an array of records, hence the error you saw. So please just work
right through a good tutorial. the time spent will be repaid many
times over.

Colin

I resolved that problem.

I done somethig like so to update each column:

def update_multiple
@postis = Posti.find(params[:posti_ids])

 @postis.each do |posti|
  posti.update_column(:stato, params[:posti])

end
redirect_to prenotazione_path(params[:spectacle_id])
end

<%= form_for :posti, :url => update_multiple_path, :html => { :method =>
:put } do |f| %>
<%= hidden_field_tag “spectacle_id”, params[:spectacle_id] %>
Posti scelti:

    <% for posti in @postis %>
  • <%=h posti.numero %>
    <%= hidden_field_tag "posti_ids[]", posti.id %>
    
  • <% end %>

<%= f.hidden_field :stato, :value => "checked" %>

<%= f.submit "PRENOTA" %>

<% end %>

It works very well and i am so very happy. Thank you Colin for helps. I
will very well a tutorial when i will finish all my esams at university.
