Hi! Can you post more data on the error — it probably tells you a line
number and class where this is occurring. I suspect that the issue might
be
in your view code?? At least I have had such… anyhow more info should
help.

Look carefully at the error and if necessary the stack trace and you
should find an indication of where it is failing in your code. Look
at that line and you will likely find a call of inject, the error is
telling you that the object you are calling inject on is nil.

hello thank you for your reply

Please don’t top post, it makes it difficult to follow the thread.
Insert your reply at appropriate points in previous message. Thanks

than i changed <%= f.text_field :interface %> to
<%= f.select :interface , @table_Interfaces %>

@table_interfaces is an array witch contains all network interface in
the linux machine .

in my controller i have :

@interfaces=%x[ifconfig|grep Link|cut -d " " -f 1]
@[email protected](" ")

I suggest you use ruby-debug to break in here and inspect the
variables to see what is going on. Have a look at the Rails Guide on
debugging to find out how.

Also have you tried running the code above in the ruby console to see
what it generates?

A secondary issue, but the rails convention for naming is
@table_interfaces (all lower case). If you stick to the rails
conventions your life will generally be simpler.

hello thank you for your reply

i will explain to you a little more the problem :

i created a scafold :

./script/generate scaffold Zone name:string interface:string
description:string

all works fine .

than i changed <%= f.text_field :interface %> to
<%= f.select :interface , @table_Interfaces %>

@table_interfaces is an array witch contains all network interface in
the linux machine .

in my controller i have :

@interfaces=%x[ifconfig|grep Link|cut -d " " -f 1]
@[email protected](" ")

and at this step all works fine . i can make all the operation on my
object Zone.

then i wanted to make some validation in the model .

i aded this in my model file Zone.rb :

class Zone < ActiveRecord::Base
validates_presence_of :name
end

Now when i want to create a new zone :

if i enter all the attribute it works fine .

if i don’t enter the name i have this error :

Showing app/views/zones/new.html.erb where line #12 raised:

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.inject

Extracted source (around line #12):
<%= f.select :interface , @table_Interfaces %>

witch mean that the model don’t know the object @table_Interfaces
witch is declared only on the controller no ?

should I add something in my model file related to @table_Interfaces ?

thank you very much for your help . i am a newbie in ROR world but i
have searched a lot without result .
