Undefined method `+' for nil:NilClass

I’m trying to send emails in my application.
the email function in under the ActionMailer::Base as follows:


def xxxxx(aaa, recipient, bbb, burl)
@from = aaa.email
@recipients = [ recipient ]
@subject = “#{aaa.firstname} #{aaa.lastname} has emailed U!”
@content_type = “text/plain”

@body["aaa"] = aaa
@body["bbb"]= bbb
@body["uri"] = "#{burl}subscribe/welcome/#{bbb.id}";

end


It’s email template is:

Hi,

<%= @aaa.firstname %> <%= @aaa.lastname %> has wants to discuss: ‘<%=
@bbb.name %>’.

Click here: <%= @uri %> .

Best regards,

nil:NilClass”.
Kindly help me out to overcome this issue!

@body[“aaa”] = aaa

nil:NilClass".

It would help to know what line/file that error is happening on.

I’m gonna guess since I don’t see a ‘+’ anywhere in the above code that
the model for @bbb has a ‘name’ method which looks something like:

def name
self.firstname + self.lastname
end

And I’m guessing that @bbb is nil.

But without knowing where the actual error occured it’s hard to say…

thanx for taking time to reply me.

Actually the problem is the one U’ve highlighted

But without knowing where the actual error occured it’s hard to say…

Also i didn’t use the ‘+’ mark anywhere in these functions,
the @aaa & @bbb are the hashes directly from the DB. I just use
AAA.find(1) and BBB.find(58) to retrieve the records.
Also i didn’t use any kind of function as U’ve suggested above.

Really i don’t know what the heck is going on with this piece of code!!
Was sitting a whole day by applying & trying various possibilities to
overcome this issue!!
