Join Kevin Skoglund for an in-depth discussion in this video Read action: Show, part of Ruby on Rails 4 Essential Training.
…In this movie we will learn to implement the Show…action, which is the other common read action used for CRUD.…In the last movie we used index to return a list of records.…One key difference about how Show works compared to Index is that…show requires an ID, and that ID must exist in the database.…Otherwise, Rails will return an active record…not found error, and that makes sense.…We can't very well view the details of a record if…we can't look it up by ID, or if it's not there.…Let's add the link to the Show page on our index…template and we'll be sure to add that ID when we do.…
So to begin with, you want to go…to your views, inside subjects, the index.html.erb.…That's the template we were just working with, and…scroll down to the link that goes to Show.…Replace the placeholder link that I've got there with a hash.…And in that hash we're going to tell the link where it should go.…We want to go to the same controller so we don't need to specify the controller.…Rails will assume that by default.…And then we want to go the action for Show.…
