radio buttons on edit/update form

Radio buttons in an edit/update form do not display the underlying data (all radio buttons are displayed unchecked) although any changes made through these contols are updated.

            <%= f.radio_button(:sex, 'female', :checked => "unchecked") %>             <%= f.radio_button(:sex, 'male', :checked => "unchecked") %>

In this case the column type is a string, however the same problem holds for boolean and integer column types. Anyway, I am missing something integal in the process, but clueless as to what it is.

Feedback will be much appreciated.

Thanks, Bill


You are correct. In my copy and paste haste, I had forgot to make the changes.

Thank you much.
