I've been thinking and googling about this for the whole afternoon and I
dont find the solution, but I know there must be an easy way (after all this
I have a page where user objects are listed (e.g. customers) and they have
several attributes (like name, e-mail etc.) and a special attribute called
contacted (which can be true or false depending on if this customer has been
contacted by the sales people or not)
No big deal I thought, just write two controller methods 'set_contacted' and
'unset_contacted' and we are done by passing over the IDs of the
corresponding objects. But then there came in two more attributes and I
suddenly end up with 6 controller methods which feels horrible wrong to me
(Not even to mention the DRY principle violation).
What I would like to do is the following using checkboxes and a form for the
whole table and a submit button in order to save the changes made to the
User | contacted
user1 | [x]
user2 | [ ]
user3 | [ ]
[ Save changes ]
You sometimes see a similar behaviour in Webmail clients where you can check
serveral e-mails at once and then hit a delete button.
Any sort of help is appreciated! Have a nice week-end
P.S is it possible that submitting topics from the web interface of google
talks does not work?
