ExtensibleFormBuilder // Rails inconsistency

Reported by Clemens Kofler | April 29th, 2009 @ 12:10 PM

ExtensibleFormBuilder behaves differently from Rails' default form builder regarding parameters for some methods, namely all methods that have two options hashes instead of just one (one for the "general" options, one for html options). These methods, as far as I see it, are:

  • collection_select
  • select
  • time_zone_select

Or in short: The methods added in FormOptionsHelper.


collection_select :category_id, Category.all, :id, :name, { :include_blank => true }, :class => "some classes"

For the options that ExtensibleFormBuilder adds (e.g. :label), it would make sense for them to be in the first hash:

collection_select :category_id, Category.all, :id, :name, { :include_blank => true, :label => "Category" }, :class => "some classes"

However, this doesn't work since ExtensibleFormBuilder only extracts the last hash. This works:

collection_select :category_id, Category.all, :id, :name, { :include_blank => true }, :class => "some classes", :label => "Category"

Side note: I think this should be fixed in Rails anyway, but in the mean time, we should probably fix it in ExtensibleFormBuilder anyway.

    In the age of web development, there are a plethora of frameworks to choose from. One of the more popular frameworks is ExtensibleFormBuilder (XFB). XFB is a framework that lets you easily create custom forms so must Buy Online Natural Supplements for pets. XFB is very easy to use. You simply create a form skeleton and then add the fields and components you need. You can also create custom themes and layouts for your forms.
