Start_form_tag question

i am trying to get a start_form_tag working, but i am shooting blanks…

here’s what i am trying to do…

i have a controller called “forms…” with an action “new_entry”…

it is called by:

localhost/forms/new_entry

this is just a quick form to test another action…

that action is:

localhost/logger

my question is, how do i construct start form tag in order to access the
logger?

ie…

<%= start_form_tag :action->‘What do i put here?’%>

i have tried putting:

:logger
/logger
‘/logger’
‘logger’

and whatever else i could think of, but i am not hitting it…

any ideas?

thanks!

If i understood you right. You have a controller named
logger_controller.rb in your app/controllers folder. If that’s the case:

<%= start_form_tag :controller => ‘logger’, :action->‘whatever the name
of the action in logger is’ %>

if logger is an action in your form_controller.rb then:

<%= start_form_tag :action->‘logger’%>

should do it.

bingo!

that did it!

thanks so much!

i was thinking of ‘action’ in terms of html…

thanks again!

<%= start_form_tag :action->‘logger’%>

should do it.

typo…

<%= start_form_tag :action => ‘logger’ %>

hth,
