'wrong number of arguments' for text_field?

This is probably something very simple but I can’t seem to figure out
why I keep getting the ‘wrong number of arguments (1 for 2)’ error with
the following code when I try to create a new record. If anyone can see
what is going wrong here please help!

new.rhtml


<%= start_form_tag :action => ‘new’ %>
<%= render :partial => ‘form’ %>
<%= image_submit_tag ‘disk.gif’ %>
<%= end_form_tag %>

_form.rhtml


<%= text_field ‘inventory’, ‘quantity’ %>

inventories_controller.rb

class InventoriesController < ApplicationController

def new
case request.method
when :get
@inventory = Inventory.new
logger.debug @inventory.inspect
when :post
@inventory = Inventory.new(params[:inventory])
if @inventory.save
flash[:notice] = ‘Inventory was successfully created’
render :action => ‘list’
else
render :action => ‘new’
end
end
end

end

`send’

Have you defined a “send” method in your Inventory model that is
overriding the Ruby send method? If so, rename.
