I'm stuck on something that seems to be super easy, but maybe I'm just
too tired to see the obvious answer.
I'm trying to make a drop down with select_tag and
options_from_collection_for_select. I'm trying to fill this drop down
list with different human races (white, black, hispanic, etc. in the
database under the name field, with a unique id for each) in the index
page of lost_children.
I have two models:
in the index view of lost_childrens:
<%= select_tag options_from_collection_for_select(Race.find(:all), :id,
This just brings up an empty drop down box. I'm thinking it may be a
relationship problem between the models but at this point I can't even
think clearly. Any help is greatly appreciated!
