Locals does not pass in var in partial

Hi everyone,

Here is code in form.html.erb for partial view (controller rfqs).
Local var :sid was defined as the id of the record and it should be
passed into the partial view standards.html.erb as a local var.

      <% @rfq.standards.each do |r| %>
        <p><%= render :partial => 'standards', :locals => { :f =>
f, :sid => r.id } %></p>
      <% end %>

Here is the standards partial view:

      <%= f.association :standards, :collection =>
Standard.active_std.all(:order => 'name'), :label_method
=> :name, :value_method => :id, :prompt => "Choose std", :label =>
"standard:", :include_blank => true, :selected => sid %>

When standards rendered, there is an error saying that sid was not
defined. I did extensive search online about how to use :locals and
could not figure out what causes error. Any thoughts about the error?
Thanks.

Not really, strange …
Is f passed correctly?
What happend if you try passing different objects as sid (:sid => 1 e.g.).

Does it work in that case?
I assume your partial is named correctly _standards.html.erb

Just a few random checks that may unveil the issue …

HTH,

Peter

Can you post the full error message please?
