accessing object in params hash

Hi there,

I am going batty with this problem and was hoping someone could help me out. I have a restaurant object that can have many boundaries (these are kept in a separate table and consist of a lat and long attribute).

I have figured out how to pass multiple boundaries in the params hash upon a new restaurant creation. The params hash looks as follows:

Parameters: {"restaurant"=>{"sun_open(4i)"=>"13", …, "commit"=>"Submit Restaurant", "authenticity_token"=>"c319f495e108e4ef33881628b63f443c94bda27a", "action"=>"validate_and_save", "controller"=>"restaurants", "boundaries"=>[{"lng"=>"-79.37759399414062", "lat"=>"43.67581809328341"}, {"lng"=>"-79.39141273498535", "lat"=>"43.677711435998695"}], "image"=>[""]}

Now in my controller I need to create a boundary object for each lat/lng in the hash. I would like to do something like this:

params[:boundaries].each do |boundary| @restaurant.boundaries << => 'lng', :lat => 'lat' )                              end unless params[:boundaries].nil

However, I just can’t seem to be able to accomplish the task. I have played around with it and either it never goes into the loop or I get an error. Does anyone know what I need to do in the controller to correctly retrieve and create the boundaries?

Thanks, steve

Either I've misundersood or you just want params[:boundaries].each do |boundary|   @restaurant.boundaries << end unless params[:boundaries].nil?
