class Town < ActiveRecord::Base
has_many :houses, :through => :streets
class Street < ActiveRecord::Base
Then we can find individual streets and houses like this...
@first_town = Town.find(:first)
@first_towns_first_street = @first_town.streets.first
@first_streets_first_house = @first_town_first_street.house.first
We can also find arrays of streets and houses like this...
@first_town_all_streets = @first_town.streets
@first_street_all_houses = @first_street.houses
But what is the correct syntax for the kind of array I'm trying to
@first_town_all_houses = @first_town.streets.houses
I'm presuming I can create a methods that iterates through the streets
array, generates an array of houses for each street, and adds that
array to a larger array of my own creation. Likewise, I'm assuming I
can assign a town_id to each house whenever I create it, just as I
automatically assign it a street_id through create/build. However, I'm
hoping there's an existing method that'll just magic up the results.
Problem is, so far I haven't found it on either of the following
Thanks in advance,
