I feel like this is a dumb question....

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by Chris Hickman, Feb 2, 2008.

  1. I am trying to call a method where the name is based on a parameter.

    For example: if sec_id = 1 I want to call template1
    if sec_id = 2 I want to call template2 ...

    Without doing if else statements, which is not reasonable for the amount
    of possible sec_id's, is there a way to say something like template and
    concatenate on the sec_id? to get template1, template2, template...

    I know you can do this to get string concatenation but I can't seem to
    use that at all as a method name, just a string.

    Thanks in advance,

  5. awesome, I have used the string concatenation in rails for links and
    action calls but never needed it for this. Thanks a lot
