Simple View Template Question

I'm trying to render a list of div's with ids "item1", "item2", "item3",
etc..
Trying to do it like this:

<% for i in 0...@items.size %>

<div id="item<%= i %>" >
.. blah blah ..
</div>

<% end %>

Pretty sure the syntax is wrong. I couldn't find the answer after
googling for a bit - perhaps I'm too new and dont know where to look.

Help please?

<% @items.each do |item| %>

<%= item.record-name %>
</div> <% end %>

I think it goes model.method action |table| tuple.relvar.

I took the logic from here

http://guides.rails.info/getting_started.html#rest

and applied the solution for post to your problem.

I’m a newbian refuge as well.

What is the problem that you see?

If you're specifically after "item1" rather than "item<item.id>", then
you can use "each_with_index":

<% @items.each_with_index do |item, index| %>
  <div class="item<%= index+1 %>">
    <%= item.record-name %>
  </div>
<% end %>

I realized I just typed the quotes wrong. Sorry!
Though thanks for the replies, especially @angel and @Michael Pavling,
those are really helpful suggestions. :slight_smile:
