I should be able to figure this out but perhaps I am brain dead...
I simply want to display the next id in sequence for a few 'categories'.
My view template is very basic...
<% for next_seq in @next_seq %>
<%= next_seq %> - <%= next_seq %><br />
<% end %>
and I want them sorted in next_seq order and since @next_seq is a
hash, it displays in a rather random order.
Not that this should matter, but the controller code for this looks like
@lib_cat = Valuelist.find(:all,
:conditions => ["list_name = 'Library Categories'"],
:order => 'list_value')
@next_seq = Hash.new
for lib_cat in @lib_cat
@next_seq[lib_cat.list_value] = Library.find(:first,
:conditions => ['ltype = ?', lib_cat.list_value],
:order => 'id DESC').id + 1
I'm not doing a 'select' so I can't do the normal collect_for_selection
