How to get the value of a text field

Hi All

Can anyone tell me how to get the value from a text field in Ruby not from javascript

(i can get the value from java script by calling “getElementById()”)

Lets say text field is like this

<%= text_field ‘confirmed_check_in’, ‘baseLeaseFee’,
‘size’=>10 %>

Please Help me

hi,

if I understood your question
in controller you can have
params[:
confirmed_check_in][:baseLeaseFee
]

For an understanding of the basics of Ruby on Rails, you might want to tackle a tutorial or two. Here's a link to one Curt Hibbs and I recently did.
