How do I post a client ID in a different controllers view?
Hello, I am so very new to Rails that my question might seem odd. But I will try to be as explicit as possible.
I have a controller named clients, It shows
<%= @client.client_identifier %> - <%= @client.client_name %>in the view that renders a clients ID and a Name. I click on "new Appliance" for this client and have it take me to a new controller. I would like to in the new controller view to show the ID of the client so I can eventually concatenate to it and save it as a hostname.
Any help on how I can get <%= @client.client_identifier %> to show up in my "new appliance" page?
Assuming you have an appliance controller, you might want to add @client in
appliance_controller.rb under the index or show methods. e.g.
class ApplianceController < ApplicationController def index @appliance = Appliance.all @client = Client.all end end
But I'm also just learning too, and whilst the above works, someone else might have another suggestion.
