It appears that I have the models and migrations set up correctly.
In case anyone is wondering why i set it up like this I had it working
with just a contact model and this will save a bunch of coding changes
to my already working CRUD ajax inline contact form. I am adding a
contrator model so I would like to have a polymorphic setup so I can
differentiate the two types of people in the form.
I have a Person that is polymorphic, it will have a contact and
class Person < ActiveRecord::Base
belongs_to :contactable, :polymorphic => true
class Contact < ActiveRecord::Base
has_many :people, :as => :contactable
When I do:
person = Person.create(params[:person])
@contact = Contact.create(params[:contact])
person.contactable = @contact
It goes without an error but puts NIL in the contactable_type and
Anyone have an idea why? I spent a couple hours with this earlier.
