Hi, I find that I have the following appear a lot inside forms in my app: <% names = SomeAssociatedModel.find(:all, :order => 'name') <%= f.collection_select :some_id, names, :id, :name %> Which is basically a select list of names vs. id. I use it when I relate between associated models (with has_many and belongs_to). I would like to write a custom tag for it, something like: <%= f.names_select :some_id, object_to_select_from %> or similar. This way, I could use it when, say, editing cities that are associated with states: <%= f.names_select :state_id, State %> I also have a select that's yes/no: <%= f.select :is_active, [['yes',true],['no',false]] %> that I'd like to turn to: <%= f.yes_no_select :is_active %> Any pointers will surely help - thanks.

Instead of writting custom tags, you could write a custom form builder with methods for those fields -> http://onrails.org/articles/2008/06/13/advanced-ra... - Maurício Linhares http://alinhavado.wordpress.com/ (pt-br) | http://blog.codevader.com/ (en) On Mon, Jan 26, 2009 at 7:25 AM, Shilo Ayalon
