Is it possible to pass predefined arguments along with a form with form_for? i.e. an id etc? I have a task model with usual title, completed(bool), duedate and a foreign key field called project_id (a project has many tasks). On one view i want to have an "express add task" form i.e. there is only one field to fill in for the title. The rest of the attributes I want to set to some default values. The problem is this form will be sent to a dffierent controller. As the user only submits a title ill also need the project_id which is known is available in the view...is there anyway i can pass this along with the form?

You can put some fixed parameters in the path part of the form's action URL, which will be extracted by the Rails routes you define, plus put some more parameters in hidden form fields. -- Rails Wheels - Find Plugins, List & Sell Plugins - http://railswheels.com

thanks very much for that. I went away and researched teh api more about hidden fields. I did try them out a while back but got an error and thought i was heading down the wrong path but you confirmed i was indeed looking in the right area. thank you once again
