I would appreciate a little help with use of :condition I hav ethe following code in a controller file:- def listbyparam if params[:department_id] != '' conditions = ["department_id = ?", params[:department_id]] end if params[:status] != '' conditions = ["Status = ?", params[:status]] end @risksfound = Risk.find(:all, :conditions => conditions) end User either clicks a link that passes a department parameter through or a link that passes a status parameter. I then load the condition field and retrieve records based on it. What actually happens is that with the above code; if I send a status through it works fine but if I send a department through it finds nothing. However if I reverse the two if statments - putting the status one first and then department, the department search will then work but the status returns nothing. It seems that whichever is the 2nd IF statement will blank the 'condition' field even if its parameter is passed through as blank and the condition field has been loaded with a value by the 1st IF statement. Can someone please suggest a better syntax for me to load the condition field depending on which parameter I click to pass through to the controller. Any help - much appreciated.
