I am new to RoR. I installed Ruby 1.8.6 and netBeans. I am using MySQL 5.5.
First I created a new rails project, called it "company".
Then I generated a new model, called it "Employee"
I added three columns :name, :hiredate, and :comments to this table.
I then migrated it so it created the table "employees" on my MySQL Database perfectly.
I then generated a scaffold for the "employees" successfully. Now when I go to localhost:8080/employees/new, it shows all the links to add, list, etc but it does not show the fields for the Name, Hiredate and comments.
If I just click on "Add" it just creates an empty row in the database. How do I have it generate the text boxes and the labels for the fields?
Can you post the template code for the new action? This can be found in app/views/employees/new.html.erb
Thank you for your response. But I found the answer to my question. I did not know that I have to repeat the table structure as scaffold generate parameters.
Once I did that, the app works fine.
Thanks once again.
