Databases • Asked by Victor Nizeyimana


I'm getting this wierd error.

NameError (undefined local variable or method `fetch_records' for #<CommentsDatatable:0x00007f7fae91f8b8>):
app/controllers/admin_controller.rb:69:in `block (2 levels) in comments'
app/controllers/admin_controller.rb:67:in `comments'


  def comments
    respond_to do |format|
      format.json { render json: }

Hey Victor,

Are you sure fetch_records isn't a method you're supposed to define in your class? From the examples for the datatables gem, it looks like you typically write that method yourself in the class.

Can you post your CommentsDatabale class for us as well?

Hey Chris,

I found the solution.
I used the old methods...

Thanks for your help! and support!
