I have a one-to-many relationship between a 'file' and a 'directory'. What I'd like is that in the 'file' scaffolding (maybe view is more appropriate?), a dropdown with all 'directory' listings. I'm having a many-to-many issue, but I'm hoping that once I figure out one-to-many, I should be able to figure out many-to-many.
The best I can find on the internet show that I put a belongs_to in file model and a has_many in directory model. How do I take it to the final step and create a dropdown that will allow me to assign directories to files?
I assume that I modify the 'new' method in the file controller, but I'm having a hard time with syntax. After modifying the controller, do I have to do anything to the view?
Any help is appreciated, or a website that outlines how to do this. I have looked around on the web and can;t find anything that spells this out for me. I'm not much of a programmer so I might not be assuming enough.
