Yes - this is a re-post, and my last post to this question - but I was
just taking one last attempt at getting help.
Any answers on how to do either would be greatly appreciated.
I am new to rails and have been scouring the web for the past two days
trying to figure out 2 things.
1) I am currently using a form with 2 models. The first is person, the
second is address. I attempted to duplicate the two models on one form
as seen in Advanced Rails Recipes and Railscasts, and they work fine -
except when there are validation issues on the address piece it just
returns saying "Addresses is invalid". I would much rather it say
"Street Address is blank" or "City cannot be blank" any ideas on how
to do this?
2) In using the GeoKit plugin I am attempting to use the
acts_as_mappable piece so when I create an address it adds the lat and
lng to the DB. If I choose just 1 field and specify it this works fine
and the table populates, but I want to concat all of the form values
(Street_Address_1, City, State, Postal_Code, Country) and pass these
in as the location. It appears GeoKit expects address to be a single
field - which will not work for my application. I am not opposed to
using another plugin, it just seems GeoKit is overall the easiest.
Any help would be greatly apperciated, and please go easy on me, I am
attempting to learn RoR on and old AWDWR book, and Advanced Rails
