Uninitialized constant

Ok, I searched but couldn’t find anything and I even tried the RoR IRC
channel with no help.

I get this error:

uninitialized constant Airport

I used this code which I got from the RoR site.

helper :sorting

def list
@sorter = SortingHelper::Sorter.new self, %w(icao host_id name),
@params[‘sort’], @params[‘order’], ‘icao’, ‘ASC’
@pages = Paginator.new self, Airport.count, 10, @params[‘page’]
@airports = Airport.find_all nil, @sorter.to_sql,
@pages.current.to_sql

render_action ‘none’ if 0 == @airports.length
end

Can anyone help? If you need more information I will give it if I can.

BTW, I’m a RoR newbie so if this is something really simple, I’m sorry.

Try putting “model :airport” on the line above “helper :sorting”

That shouldn’t be necessary if the Airport model is in
app/models/airport.rb, or if this controller is called “Airports” or
“Airport”, but it will probably fix it.

Thanks Wilson, but just by dumb luck I figured it out.

I replaced my list with:

def list
@sorter = SortingHelper::Sorter.new self, %w(event course
section date), @params[‘sort’], @params[‘order’], ‘date’, ‘ASC’
@pages = Paginator.new self, Dates.count, 10, @params[‘page’]
@dates = Dates.find_all nil, @sorter.to_sql, @pages.current.to_sql
render_action ‘none’ if 0 == @dates.length
end

It was a stupid mistake of not realizing that I needed to change
Airport(s) to Date(s). :slight_smile:
