    I have an ActiveRecord class with a has_many of another class. All works fine to query the first and add the second with to_json. However, how can i display the class B data in a more precise format?

    ss ="")
    render :json => ss.to_json:)include => {:shirt => {:eek:nly => :name}})

    [{"id":"SHIRT SET 1","shirts":[{"name":"shirt1"},{"name":"shirt 2"},{"name":"shirt 3"}]}]

    when what i really want is:

    [{"id":"SHIRT SET 1","shirts":["shirt1","shirt 2","shirt 3"}]

    is there a way to easily do that with to_json (maybe the :method helper?)
