Text_field and date_select in collection

hello,

i would like to display a collection of records on one page (e.g. an

author record with all his/her books).

a record contains a text_area (e.g. a description of the book) and a

date_select (e.g. when the book was published).

<% for @book in @author.books %>
<%= text_area ‘book[]’, ‘note’ %>
<%= datetime_select ‘book[]’, ‘published_on’ %>
<% end %>

the text_field works nice, the generated code looks like:

foo

the ID of a book record is there.


BUT i do not know, how to achieve this with the date_select helper?
the helper generates:
00</option ...
it should be name="book[12][published_on(2i)]"


how to do that? (:prefix, :discard_type did not work for me)


	thanks

As the core code is currently written, you can’t use either auto or
explicit indexing with date_select. You’ll have to use select_year,
select_month, and select_day, using @book.published_on as their dates,
prefix options set to “book[#{@book.id}]”, and field_name options
‘published_on(1i)’, ‘published_on(2i)’, and ‘published_on(3i)’.


We develop, watch us RoR, in numbers too big to ignore.

thanks :)

have a nice day
