Newbie doubt in links and controllers

Hi all, I’ve the following doubt.

I’ve this controller methods:

def set_elaborator

@entry = Entry.find(params[:id])

@entry.geomatics_elaboration_id = current_user.id

if @entry.save!

redirect_to(@entry, :notice => ‘Elaborator setted successfully’)

end

end

def set_reviewer

@entry = Entry.find(params[:id])

@entry.geomatics_checker_id = current_user.id

if @entry.save!

redirect_to(@entry, :notice => ‘Elaborator setted successfully’)

end

end

So, I want to add a link in the show view, like this:

<%= t(‘entries.fields.geomatics_elaboration’) %>:

<% if @entry.geomatics_elaboration_id.nil? and current_user.geomatics %>

<%= link_to entry, :confirm => ‘Are you sure?’, :method => :set_elaborator do %>

<% end %>

<% elsif @entry.geomatics_elaboration_id.nil? and not current_user.geomatics %>

<%= t(‘entries.messages.not_assigned_yet’) %>

<% else %>

<%= User.find(@entry.geomatics_elaboration_id).fullname %>

<% end %>

<%= t(‘entries.fields.geomatics_review’) %>:

<% if @entry.geomatics_checker_id.nil? and current_user.geomatics %>

<%= link_to @entry, :confirm => ‘Are you sure?’, :method => :set_reviewer do %>

<% end %>

<% elsif @entry.geomatics_checker_id.nil? and not current_user.geomatics %>

<%= t(‘entries.messages.not_assigned_yet’) %>

<% else %>

<%= User.find(@entry.geomatics_checker_id).fullname %>

<% end %>

I want to, when I click the link update the @entry and load the show template with the changes…

Any suggestion?

Regards,

Hi all, I've the following doubt.
I've this controller methods:
def set_elaborator
@entry = Entry.find(params[:id])
@entry.geomatics_elaboration_id = current_user.id
if @entry.save!

This should be save, not save!. save! generates an exception if it
fails rather than returning false.

  redirect\_to\(@entry, :notice =&gt; &#39;Elaborator setted successfully&#39;\)
end

end
def set_reviewer
@entry = Entry.find(params[:id])
@entry.geomatics_checker_id = current_user.id
if @entry.save!
redirect_to(@entry, :notice => 'Elaborator setted successfully')
end
end
So, I want to add a link in the show view, like this:
<p>
<b><%= t('entries.fields.geomatics_elaboration') %>:</b>
<% if @entry.geomatics_elaboration_id.nil? and current_user.geomatics %>
<%= link_to entry, :confirm => 'Are you sure?', :method =>
:set_elaborator do %>
<img src="../images/buttons/Delete.png" title="Elaborate this
entry"/>
<% end %>
<% elsif @entry.geomatics_elaboration_id.nil? and not
current_user.geomatics %>
<%= t('entries.messages.not_assigned_yet') %>
<% else %>
<%= User.find(@entry.geomatics_elaboration_id).fullname %>
<% end %>
</p>
<p>
<b><%= t('entries.fields.geomatics_review') %>:</b>
<% if @entry.geomatics_checker_id.nil? and current_user.geomatics %>
<%= link_to @entry, :confirm => 'Are you sure?', :method =>
:set_reviewer do %>
<img src="../images/buttons/Delete.png" title="Review this entry"/>
<% end %>
<% elsif @entry.geomatics_checker_id.nil? and not current_user.geomatics
%>
<%= t('entries.messages.not_assigned_yet') %>
<% else %>
<%= User.find(@entry.geomatics_checker_id).fullname %>

You have shown much too much detail and made the question too
complicated. Extract the fundamental question and demonstrate the
problem with a *few* lines of code if necessary.

Ok Let’s try:

I want to update a especific field from a show view when I click the “Set reviewer” link (assigning the current user ID), reload the same view and see the changes.

Fields:

*Entry.geomatics_checker_id

*User.id.

I hope you can upderstand now. (Sorry for my bad english :confused: )

Hi all, I’ve the following doubt.

<% if @entry.geomatics_checker_id.nil? and current_user.geomatics %>

<%= link_to @entry, :confirm => ‘Are you sure?’, :method => :set_reviewer do %>

Method (in this context) refers to an http method, i.e. get,post,put and so on

Normally to do what you’re trying you’d add a route for that action to config/routes.rb, and then you can call some_action_entry_path(entry) to get the path to link to
