Simple Problem

Hi there,

I have a simple search application where a user types in there address
and I return a list. I have a radio button and a drop down where the
user can narrow down the search. The problem is that after the search
form is submitted and the page redisplays both the drop down value and
radio button return to there original values rather then the ones chosen
by the user. How can I go about keeping these values? Here is my view
code...

<TD><%= text_field_tag :search, params[:search], :size => 50 %></TD>
  <TD><%= collection_select(:restaurant, :cuisine_id
,Cuisine.find(:all), :id, :name, :prompt => "Don't Care") %></TD>
  <TD><%= submit_tag "Who Delivers?", :name => nil %> </TD>
</TR>
<TR>
  <TD><input type="checkbox" name="checkopen">Open Now</TD>

Thanks,
steve

<TR>
<TD><input type="checkbox" name="checkopen">Open Now</TD>

<%= check_box_tag 'checkopen', 1, params[:checkopen] == '1' %>

Something similar for collection_select...

Thanks Philip...worked like a charm.

Is there a collection_select_tag option? I can't seem to find it?
