fields dont display on browser

Hi

I'm new to Rails. i am using aptana Radrails and rad rails standalone
version for my development. Followed some tutorials on the web on how to
create a simple project.

When I fire up the browser the fields and labels are not being
displayed. I also tried IE external to RadRails, and FireFox. Same
thing. I see 'show edit destroy', and 'new', and that's it. I can click
on 'new', then click on 'create', and a record does get added to the
MySQL db (all spaces).

I added a default value to one of the fields and that isn't displayed
either. I've deleted the project and did it again, same result. Deleted
that one and followed the example from the Ruby on Rails for Dummies
book...same result.

Any suggestions on what could be causing this? pls see the attachemnt
too

thank you

Umm... you have no fields defined in your views?

What is in index.html.erb, or show.html.erb, or new and edit erb files?

Or perhaps your model has only id and nothing else?

Hard to tell without some source to look at.

Hi Ar Chron

first of all thank you very much for your reply.

i followed many examples all seems to be pretty much same. here is one
http://tv.aptana.com/videos/introduction-to-radrails?ref=learn&refId=6

index.html.erb
<h1>Listing employees</h1>
<table>
  <tr>
  </tr>
<% @employees.each do |employee| %>
  <tr>
    <td><%= link_to 'Show', employee %></td>
    <td><%= link_to 'Edit', edit_employee_path(employee) %></td>
    <td><%= link_to 'Destroy', employee, :confirm => 'Are you sure?',
:method => :delete %></td>
  </tr>
<% end %>
</table>
<br />
<%= link_to 'New employee', new_employee_path %>

new.html.erb
<h1>New employee</h1>
<% form_for(@employee) do |f| %>
  <%= f.error_messages %>
  <p>
    <%= f.submit 'Create' %>
  </p>
<% end %>
<%= link_to 'Back', employees_path %>

show.html.erb
<%= link_to 'Edit', edit_employee_path(@employee) %> |
<%= link_to 'Back', employees_path %>

edit.html.erb
<h1>Editing employee</h1>

<% form_for(@employee) do |f| %>
  <%= f.error_messages %>

  <p>
    <%= f.submit 'Update' %>
  </p>
<% end %>

<%= link_to 'Show', @employee %> |
<%= link_to 'Back', employees_path %>

i have also attached the project for your reference.

i am new to RoR so i really appreciate you help to get stuff started.

Thank you Again

None of your views have any fields - just links for Create, Edit,
Back, New, etc.

It looks like you might have generated scaffolding without specifying
any field attributes.

may be i am using incorrect tool for my development. if so can any one
point me to the correct tools

thank you

Hi Asanka,

I have same issue. Did you find what was wrong with that example?
If yes please let me know how to fix it.

Thank you,
Vlad

It looks like the form_for helper needs to be using a print ERB expression tag instead of ERB code tag:
<%= form_for(@employee) do |f| %>

instead of

<% form_for(@employee) do |f| %>

Hi Asanka,

I have same issue. Did you find what was wrong with that example?
If yes please let me know how to fix it.

I'd guess that the tutorial being followed assumes the presence of
dynamic scaffolding, which hasn't been the case for a long time (was
removed in rails 2 I think)
