Undefined method `find_all'

when i load the page which pulls the records from a database, using
‘find_all’ in the controller it works fine.

However when i reload the page i get the following error:

undefined method `find_all’

i have another list of records on the same page that are pulled from
another table and i never get this problem.

dont know if it might help, but find_all will be deprecated in next
versions of RoR soon if i recall correctly…
use find(:all)

undefined method `find’ for Test:Module

still getting the error.

show some code. be more describing …

i have a controller for the first page which displays the records for 2
tables in my database.

CONTROLLER 1

var1 = Table1.find(:all)
var2 = Table2.find(:all)

VIEW 1

the view for this displays all of the records, along with checkboxes.

form action = “/another_controler/run”

var1.each do |record|
record.name

end

var2.each do |record2|
record2.name

end

CONTROLLER 2

the params from view 1 are passed to controller 2

def run

variable1 = params[‘group’]
variable2 = params[‘group2’]

variable2.each{
|x|

variable1.each{
  |y|

  # y is then passed to a new object
  newVariable = Class.new(y)

  #methods are invoked depending on what x is equal too
  # eg...
  if x == 'example'
    newVariable.example()
  end
}

}
end

VIEW 2

the view for run displays variable1

variable1.each |y|
y.name
end

THE PROBLEM

i have written my code in short hand just to give you an idea of the
structure.

the problem i have is that when the view for run (VIEW2) is invoked,
when i go back to the first page i get the follwing error:

undefined method ‘find’ for Table1:Module

Could you provide an actual copy of the code that is failing?

bump please help

hi, thanks for you responses, i seem to have resolved the issue now.

the model that was causing the problems was named Test, i renamed it and
now it works.

i assume Test is a keyword or something.

i had the following error while trying to implement Collection _select
in making a drop down of items in two models

You have a nil object when you didn’t expect it!
You might have expected an instance of Array.
The error occurred while evaluating nil.map

my code in the views is as follows:

<%= collection_select(“category”, “category_id”,@categorys, “id”,
“category_type”) %>
I need guidance on how to properly do this, thanks for the support
yesterday.

The error probably means that @categorys is nil, did you mean
@categories possibly?

i have modified my code as follows:

<%= collection_select(:category, :id, @categories, :id, :category_type,
options ={:prompt => “-Select a Category”}, :class =>“category”) %>

i Hav also modified the definition in my controllers as follows:

@categories = category.find(:all)

That should be Category.find(:all)

You have not said where that error occurs, but wherever it is
something is nil. Have a look at the Rails Guide on Debugging, that
will show you how to use ruby-debug to break into code, inspect data
and follow the flow. Then when you get this sort of error you can put
in breakpoints and check each of the variables to find which one is
nil.

Classes should have a capital:

Category.find(:all)

and you could even bring this down to:

Category.all

You have not said, but I presume that you mean that it still gives you
the error with Category.find. How did you get on with ruby-debug?
