Querying Multiple Database table and display results in index.html.erb

I am trying to Querying Multiple Database table and display results in races index.html.erb

Schema is this

ActiveRecord::Schema.define(version: 2019_05_21_043953) do

create_table “days”, force: :cascade do |t|

t.date “day”

t.integer “season_id”

t.datetime “created_at”, null: false

t.datetime “updated_at”, null: false

t.index [“season_id”], name: “index_days_on_season_id”


create_table “races”, force: :cascade do |t|

t.boolean “display”

t.text “racename”

t.text “class”

t.integer “season_id”

t.integer “day_id”

t.datetime “created_at”, null: false

t.datetime “updated_at”, null: false

t.index [“day_id”], name: “index_races_on_day_id”

t.index [“season_id”], name: “index_races_on_season_id”


create_table “seasons”, force: :cascade do |t|

t.integer “year”

t.datetime “created_at”, null: false

t.datetime “updated_at”, null: false



A typical query in rails console --sandbox Querying all the races for that day

SELECT day,class,racename FROM RACES

INNER JOIN DAYS on days.id = races.day_id

INNER JOIN SEASONS on days.season_id = seasons.id

WHERE days.id = ‘46’

“2019-04-20” “Pee Wee” “Pee Wee Div 2”

“2019-04-20” “Pee Wee” “Pee Wee Div 1”

“2019-04-20” “Juniors” “Juniors Div 2 Shilo Tocher Cup”

“2019-04-20” “Juniors” “Juniors Div 1 Gavin Tavendale Cup”

“2019-04-20” “Solo” “Solo’s Robin McKinnon Plate”

“2019-04-20” “Side Cars” “Sidecars Tony Schafer Cup”

I have this as the race model

class Race < ApplicationRecord

belongs_to :season

belongs_to :day

class << self

def with_season(seasons)

	joins(:seasons).where(seasons: {id: seasons})


def with_day(days)

	joins(:days).where(days: {id: days})


def with_race(races)

	joins(:races).where(races: {id: races})




I want to select the Season ,the day and the race

with something like this in races index.html.erb

<%= f.label :day_id , class: ‘control-label’ %>

<%= collection_select(:race, :day_id, Day.all, :id, :day, {}, {:multiple => false}) %>

So far I have this for races index.html.erb

<%= notice %>


@races = Race.with_season(params[:season_id]).with_day(params[:day_id]).with_race(params[:_id])

<% @races.each do |race| %>

<% end %>

Display Racename Class Season Day
<%= race.display %> <%= race.racename %> <%= race.class %> <%= race.season %> <%= race.day %> <%= link_to 'Show', race %> <%= link_to 'Edit', edit_race_path(race) %> <%= link_to 'Destroy', race, method: :delete, data: { confirm: 'Are you sure?' } %>

<%= link_to ‘New Race’, new_race_path %>

Any Questions or suggestions just post please

Cheers Dave

Do you have an error or something?

I don’t get why you do that joins(:races), maybe I’m missing something but sound like you could just do where(id: races).

You can call to_sql on the query to see the generated SQL query if you want to check what’s going on.

I would move this @races = Race.with_season(params[:season_id]).with_day(params[:day_id]).with_race(params[:_id]) to the controller.

Personally, I would use named scopes instead of class methods

scope :with_season, -> (season_id) { includes(:seasons).where(seasons: {id: season_id}) }


Anyway, I don’t understand if you have an error or something or what.

This is the error I get ‘undefined method `fetch_value’ for nil:NilClass’

This is what I ultimately want the page to look like See attacked picture

I have not include the last Database Table yet in my code. I know what the SQL statements look like. I just don’t know how to do the select from the form and to get data to the Database and retrieve the results and display them

Which line throws the error? show the error stack

I’m not sure you can have a column named “class” while using activerecord. “class” is a reserved word (race.class should return the Race class, not an attribute value). It could be causing weird hidden problems.

I still don’t understand why you do joins(:races) since your Race model doesn’t have an association with another race object.

show the server log, you are omitting a lot of information

I will repost after I have changed the Race Table
