Multiple forms one submit.

Rails • Asked by kriera

Hi there!

I've a view that needs to generate a form table, based on clients and days. For 7 days it creates

View (i've tried to do
<%= form_for @effort, data: {remote: true} do |f| %>
<% do |client| %>

<%= %>
    <%  @days.each do |day| %>

    <th style="" colspan="2">
    <%= render 'home/dashboard/form', :user => current_user, :client => client, :day => day  %>
    <% end %>
<% end %>

<% end %>

<%= button_tag "Save", id: "button-feedback-by-bullet", data: {controller: "effort", target: "effort", action: "effort#getdate" } %>

with Flatpickr i do select the date i need and with this JS I do modify the ID and the classname of HTML elements to be able to generate individual input fields

generateDates (a){

console.log("data generateDates: " + a)
this.numArray = new Array(7);

for (var i = 0; i < this.numArray.length; i++) {
  var dateParsed = Date.parse(a).add(-[i]).day()
  var dateToload = Date.parse(dateParsed).toString('dd/MM/yyyy')
  this.header = new Array()
  var header = document.getElementsByClassName('dateTodayEffort-'+[i])
  document.getElementById('dateToday-'+[i]).innerHTML = dateToload

var ar_header = header.length;

for (var n = 0; n < ar_header; n++) {
header[n].value = dateToload


let forms = document.getElementsByTagName('form');
for (let index = 0; index < forms.length; ++index) {
var formId = 'form'+[index]
forms[index].id = formId





def create
@effort =

  if @effort.effort_time = nil


 respond_to do |format|
    format.html { redirect_to dashboard_path , notice: 'Effort was successfully created.' }
    # format.json { render :show, status: :created, location: @effort }
    format.html { render dashboard
    format.json { render json: @effort.errors, status: :unprocessable_entity }

The problem i've is: once i do submit, it creates each input and do the redirect of each form

I would need to do some kinf of array of form data imput and once its saved then redirect or refresh page or whatever

any idea?

thanks in advance!
