I am using gem 'ckeditor', '3.5.0', Rails 3.. It works fine in my 'New' and 'Edit' pages but not 'Show' page 'New' and 'Edit' pages using the following... <%= form_for @question, <%= f.cktext_area :correct_anno, :toolbar=>'Full', :width=>'1140px', :height=>'250px' %> and all is good.

Show action uses a virtual attribute 'formatted_question' which contains a hash. Not using a form helper. I am trying to populate the ckeditor field with the text from a field in the hash (:correct_anno) and can't figure out how to format it.

This is the format I need to conform to: <%= ckeditor_textarea("object", "field", :width => '100%', :height => '200px') %>

Have tried several variations including: <%= ckeditor_textarea("Formatted_question", "@formatted_question[:correct_anno]", ...

Not sure how to specify @formatted_question[:correct_anno] to ckeditor "field"

Any help from a more experienced programmer would be really appreciated.
