            Simple Form not showing errors at top
            Asked 2022-Feb-08 at 22:41

            I have a simple_form form setup and it will show inline errors fine. I have had problems with some users not seeing these errors and have had requests for a clear enumeration at the top of the very long form. I've used the code setup from the Rails Tutorial:



            Answered 2022-Feb-08 at 22:41

            With some help from Michael Koper, we were able to sort this out. The controller methods were missing status: :unprocessable_entity on the format.html statements. So changing:

            format.html { render action: "new"}


            format.html { render action: "new", status: :unprocessable_entity }

            Solved this issue.

            Its a simple pluralization error. Your model has_many :venues and accepts_nested_attributes_for :venues so you need to use the plural :venues in your form:

            Asked 2021-Jun-22 at 16:50

            I added a new column to model Plan, named :per_unit_quantities_configuration which is a hash with min, max and step key/values.



            Answered 2021-Jun-22 at 16:50

            since you setup store_accessor :per_unit_quantities_configuration then you can access directly 3 attributes min, max, step, so that you no need to wrap those attributes on simple_fields_for :per_unit_quantities_configuration and treat them as normal fields (that mean on controller you have to permit them as normal fields)

            I'm upgrading rails from 4.2 to 5.0, and I'm getting some mean dependency issues. When I run bundle update i get the following output. The thing is that when i look through the messages, it looks like the gems should be able to install just fine when looking at the version requirements.

            I also tried to delete my Gemfile.lock, that didn't help.

            Any suggestions would be appreciated.



            Answered 2021-May-07 at 10:24

            Most likely you have some strong constraints on some particular gems in your Gemfile that's it's blocking bundle from updating a dependency.



            = javascript_include_tag "application" giving error ExecJS::RuntimeError at / SyntaxError: [stdin]:1:1: unexpected //=
            Asked 2021-May-04 at 18:59

            I am more of a Java programmer and still somewhat new to development (2 years or so, can write Java code & web apps just fine) however the company I work for has 4 Rails applications and was asked to get this application working called CtrlPanel. I have been having to learn Ruby on Rails in order to help get this issue with this app fixed and get it working.

            I have been working on this problem for over a week all day long every day and nothing I do is fixing it.

            I fixed everything to the point the app comes up, web server runs serves the pages but all views are white screens as long as this application.html.haml file is present. I re-wrote the file with very basic bootstrap and it sort of works but nothing looks right. The problem seems to stem from 1 single like that simply says: = javascript_include_tag "application"

            I have been all over the internet and have tried every single fix from changing coffee-script-source to v1.8.0 as I read Windows has an issue with newer rails and that file, I have tried every variation of changing it from application to default, and every type of ending you can think of no matter what I do it gives me this error message which I can not seem to find.

            I am not even sure WHAT that line does, I assume it has to do with the new Google Maps API and I verified the key is valid and it was working before.

            This is the error is it giving it says the line with "= javascript_include_tag" "application" giving error ExecJS::RuntimeError at / SyntaxError: [stdin]:1:1: unexpected //=

            I am running a PC on Windows 10 20H2 x64 UEFI ruby 2.7.2p137 (2020-10-01 revision 5445e04352) [x64-mingw32] Rails 6.1.3

            (I did also install Ubuntu on another machine and it gives the exact same error, also gives the same error on another Windows machine)

            The app is working IF I delete the "application.html.haml" file and put in a skeleton basic version all of the other views start working but of course none of them look right no menus no bootstrap no nothing.
            Here is the application.html.haml file.



            Answered 2021-May-04 at 18:59

            I did finally figure out what this was.
            The older versions of rails in this case v4.2.1 used the javascript_include_tag for the line that deals with application:

            = javascript_include_tag "application"

            In the newer versions of rails in my case v6.1.3.1 you have to use javascript_pack_tag

            = javascript_pack_tag

            This solved the issue and the views all started working. I did mention above I was working on a PC running Rails v6.1.3; however I noticed I didn't make it clear that I was also having to upgrade this program from Ruby v2.2.2 and Rails v4.2.1 to Ruby v 2.7.2 and Rails v6.1.3, that might have helped to have made that more clear. Apologies if that confused anyone. I am still VERY new to Rails and using I am happy to report I have only 1 single issue left on this program and the rest of the program is all working properly. I will be posting another question in fact because the last issue deals with a complicated scope query and it uses different syntax again due to the newer version of rails and I haven't been able to figure it out. In any even if you are running an older version of Rails and you are trying to get the program to work on a newer version (my case as I couldn't get rails v4.2 to run or work on ANYTHING, PC, Linux nothing) then you have to change the include_tag to a pack_tag. I do not pretend to say I fully understand why. I know it has to do with webpacker but beyond that I am still learning Rails. Perhaps someone with more knowledge than myself can shed some insite as to why the syntax changed. Oh and in addition the line ended up needing to read as follows:

            = javascript_pack_tag "application", "data-turbolinks-track": "reload"

            I didn't have the turbolinks reference either.

            I hope this helps someone else in a similar situation that I was in, it was not easy to find. I only discovered it when I went through some tutorials on making other generic apps and saw the difference on that line.



            Show form results without reload in Ruby on Rails
            Asked 2021-Apr-11 at 13:11

            I have a page with a form I'd like to see the results of without reloading in my rails app, but I'm new to incorporating JS in ruby on rails. I've tried following along Display result data without page refresh on form submission in ruby on rails as well as a few 'intro to AJAX' guides, but am struggling to apply them to my own project.

            In my user profile profile.html.erb, I have a list of tags for a review



            Answered 2021-Apr-11 at 13:11

            Looks like you try fill form data and save it in one action. If i am right understand you issue you have Review and Review has many review tags. And you try added this tags on page where you working with Review model and you want edit Review data and ReviewTag data on one page without reloading. You need to use nested_attributes and create form how edited ReviewTag from javascript. Recomend to see this guide

            It works like this:

            1. on Review model add accepts_nested_attributes_for :review_tags
            2. on page where you edit Review model added block like form.fields_for :review_tags do |builder|
            3. on the same page added a button like create tag and added js onclick action - this action create a form for new ReviewTag. Read this - How to Create a Form Dynamically Via Javascript

            If you need to validate you new tag dynamicly you can call ajax for do it
