beginner question getting data from textbox

Hi, you should change

<form action = "\look\at" >


<form action="/look/at" >

Also, I would recommend do the following:

a) change your input file to input.rhtml
b) copy the file to app/views/look folder

The above should do what you want.

Good luck,


Hi Corey, I forget step (c), (d), and (e)

c) add the file at.rhtml to /app/views/look folder if it's not already there
d) start the webserver in windows by going to the root of your rails

     ruby script/server webrick

e) go to your browser and type the following in the address field


Good luck,
