Associate two tables one-to-many in rhodes
I'm starting a new application in rhodes and I'm trying to associate two tables. I already tried doing what is suggested in http://docs.rhomobile.com/rhodes/rhom#associations but I guess there is something missing, because it is not working. This is what i did:
I have a Client table and a Photo table. A client can have many photos, but photos only one client. I added to my Photo.rb
belongs_to :client_id, 'Client'
and added the following to client_controller:
photo = Photo.find(:first) # find the photo photo.client_id = @client.object photo.save redirect :action => :index
As said in the link above, but when I try to create a new user it doesn't work.
I also added:
@photo = Photo.new
to the client_controller in new, and also added a field to enter some input to one of the fields in photo when creating a new Client. But again it doesn't work.
Do you have any suggestions? Thank you!
Associations (belongs_to, has_many, ...) in rhodes are useful only for sync operations. It indicates when to trigger a sync in certain objects, like its parent or childrens. For other purposes (manipulating object relations) you need to do it by yourself.
