Fields_for adding html (text) for hidden field

Hello all,

I'm getting this weird '<input name value='2' type='hidden' />' text
printed out in my form. See attached image. I've spent too much time
trying to figure it out already and it's not going to stop me from
moving on for now.

As you can see it's still very early on.

I'm using nested_attributes_for and fields_for: (also HAML)

That sort of thing is often caused by invalid html.
Try copying the full page source (probably right click View Source in
the browser) and pasting it into the w3c html validator.



# you can try this way:

<%= form_for :module_name do |form| %>

<%= form.hidden_field :name,:value=>'2'%>


# controller side you can get like this way



Hey, this should do the trick:

= form_for @user, :url => {:action => 'update'} do |f|
  = f.fields_for :roles do |r|
    - if r.object.for_object.present?
      = r.label :role,
      = :role, Role::Roles.options_for_select
    - else
  = f.submit "Update User"
