Using form_for for nested objects


I have the following data model:

  • Person (name, …)
  • Address (street, city)
  • Person has_ony Address

I would like to edit the Person and its Address in one single form.
Using form_for, I can add the person fields. Using fields_for, I could
have the Address also, but it’s not nested here (aka
person[address[street]]. So the question is how to “prefix” the
field_for to include the Address hash into the Person hash?

Thank you!

Hi Jerome,

I think you’ll get more help with this on the development list at
removed_e[email protected]. The question doesn’t seem to me to
deployment related.

Best regards,
