I'm kinda new to rails, could someone point me in the right direction?
I have a load of model names sitting in a table. Given a loop through
those Model names, how do I call activerecord functions, like count,
on each iteration dynamically to display summary info in each link?
In my activescaffold helper I have the following code that generates
model = record.cube.gsub(/cube_/, 'tag_pivot_')
model = model.singularize
# error here. How do I call activerecord given my actual model name
is in the variable called "model"?
num = model.count.to_s
# I am testing the line below, that shows the number of records in
the link text
link_to(model + " [" + num + "] ", "/" << record.cube.gsub(/cube_/,
# original working line of code.
# link_to(record.cube.gsub(/cube_/, 'tag_pivot_'), "/" <<
