How do you reconcile foreign keys for forms?

Hi all,

I'm looking to resolve foreign keys for forms -- similar to the way
"streamlined" does it. Although the actual value stored in an object
is the foreign key integer, I'd like the actual name of the item
displayed.

I'm *sure* it's easy. Thoughts?

Regards.

So you have one object, say a user
and another one that belongs to the user, say an address

then:
User model:

has_one :address

Address model

belongs_to :user

then after finding the user
@user = User.find(params[:id])

you can access the address with
@user.address
or single address fields
@user.address.city

belongs_to and has_many have a lot of options.
You can set a foreign_key if you don't use the default user_id in the
address table
