nube-Simple Question

I want to collect a value and then use the value to edit the record, I
have so far:

<p><label for="treetag">TAG number on tree:</label><br/>
<%= text_field_tag 'treetag' %></p>

<%=link_to "Edit", :controller => "inventory", :action => "edit", :id
=> 5%>

I need to get the value out of the text_field_tag and put it on the ":id
=>"

is there an easy way to do this?

Thanks!

You'd have to write an onclick javascript handler. Why not use a form?
(You can always style the form button to not look like a button if you
want)
