I guess the subject is fairly self-explanatory. I’m pretty new to RoR,
but I’d like to learn how to structure a find that looks at the first
character of a field, say firstname, to find those that match a
parameter passed in to the controller.
Hopefully it’s not too difficult.
Thanks in advance.
@person = Person,find(:all, :conditions => [“firstname LIKE ?%”, params
The question mark is replaced with params[:letter]. There is plenty of
material on the LIKE keyword on the internet, so if you don’t know
what it does, go ahead and do some research.
