check box update

I want to create a check box that will update a field in a database
table. How do you link a method in a model to a check box?

Do you mean updates the record via Ajax when the check box is clicked? See http://www.ruby-forum.com/topic/112174

check_box object, method

I tried that in a form, and it didn't work, is there any way to force it
to do execute the method.

Also, I like the idea of automatically updating with ajax, is there a
way to do this without UJS?

Yes, you can use the observer_field helper method (http://api.rubyonrails.org/classes/ActionView/Helpers/PrototypeHelper.html#M000535)

Hope this helps
