How to Submit Complex Form Data in Ruby on Rails Discussion

Hi Chris,
Yet another good tutorial you made. I must say I always use option 1.
I don't like moving logic to JS if not needed because more dependencies and more code


I don't know how to express it but I'm not comfortable with the second approach. Way more code, clutter and moving parts.

Also, quick and possibly noob question: wouldn't the user be able to change the hidden_field value (by using the inspector) and put whatever value he wants for each of them, without respecting the range?


Hey Chris, thank you for this! Quick question on method 1: Is there a simple way to throw an error in the model so that the .save fails back in the controller? I have a rather complex algorithm that a user sent string must pass and I need to notify them if it fails.
