ActiveScaffold and partials

I was thinking of doing partials as I did in the simple Rails
application I worked on today.

But, since I'm using ActiveScaffold, I didn't find any *.html.erb in the
views folder of the Rails application that I need to make my partials!

How can I work with partials in ActiveScaffold?

Thanks.

I wrote a long answer about hour ago but i have a new phone and i
think i didnt send it .

Activescaffold is a rails app in it self it only uses your model, if
you go to the vendor/plugin folder you will see it sitting there it
has its own controllers and views , thats why your app is empty and
thats why i dont recommend it because is going to confuse you.

Active scaffold is used only in the admin section of the app.

Yes @radhames. I think especially as for me kind of still new RoR, I
should go with learning and using RoR as is.

Thanks.

Thanks @radhames.

I think the solution to that was using "references" as shown in the
example below:

Right. ActiveScaffold is a plugin and has its own views folder (which
you normally shouldn't mess with).

ActiveScaffold is essentially a simple database interface. Whatever
you're doing with partials should not normally involve ActiveScaffold.

What are you trying to do here?

Thanks.

Best,

Thanks @Marnen.

I think my issue was solved by the simple example here:
http://vhochstein.wordpress.com/2010/08/28/setupactivescaffoldrails3/#comments

What I was trying to do with partials is that I have an "items" and
"itemdetails" tables, and "items" "has_many" "itemdetails", and wanted
the "itemdetails" to be AT THE SAME page of the "item", since for each
item, there are different "itemdetails".

And, my issue was solved when I inserted a column in "itemdetails",
namley, "item" and gave it the type "references" as follows:

item:references

I think it acts like a foreign key, and is the same as saying:

item_id:integer

in ordinary Rails, doesn't it?

Reagarding "references", I thought is was related to ActiveScaffold, but
from here:
http://vhochstein.wordpress.com/2010/08/28/setupactivescaffoldrails3/#comments

I was told it is pure Rails.

Information on "references" can be found here:

Thanks.
