I'm new to Rails and i'm trying to create a 'nested' form for user to
a company. I would like the client to be able to create a company in
the users sign up form. I get the part were you can choose a company
from a collection, but i want to allow the user to create a new
company through a text field in the sign up user form.
This is what i have:
class User < ActiveRecord::Base
attr_accessible :email, :password, :password_confirmation, :remember_me, :admin, :company_id, :firstname, :lastname
class Company < ActiveRecord::Base
and in the form:
<%= simple_form_for(resource, :as => resource_name, :url =>
registration_path(resource_name)) do |f| %>
<%= f.error_notification %>
<%= f.fields_for :company do |cf| %>
<%= cf.input :name, :required => true, :autofocus => true %>
<% end %>
<%= f.input :email, :required => true, :autofocus => true %>
<%= f.input :password, :required => true %>
<%= f.input :password_confirmation, :required => true %>
<%= f.button :submit, :class => 'btn-primary', :value => 'Sign up'
<% end %>
The above code gives a company name text field in the form but on
submit rails trows an error: Can't mass-assign protected attributes:
company. I probably have to add a route to? until now i only have
resources :companies and resources :users.
I did my best to google for a solution/ example.. found some nested
form examples but its not clear to me.
Any help on this would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
