AdminUser CRUD challenges always have a solution. You'll see how a model can be built to define the admin user's first and last names, which are then joined using string interpolation or an array. Learn how to use admin user parameters and private methods in concert with templates called by index actions. This video will help you program admin interfaces faster and easier with Ruby on Rails.

…[SOUND].…In this movie we'll take a look at my solution to the challenge assignment.…This code is included in the course exercise files.…The first thing I did was I worked on the model.…So down in the model I defined two new things.…One is a new method called name Which simply…returns a string, which is the first name and the…last name with a space in between and string…interpolation is the easiest way to do that in Ruby.…You also could do it by adding them…together, adding the strings, first name plus a space…plus the last name or you could have them inside of an array and join them together.…
Any of those would have worked, there are…probably a couple of other options as well.…But this I think is the simplest.…Then I added a scope for sorted.…That's a lambda.…That's going to call order on last name ascending and then first name ascending.…I didn't have to disambiguate the tables here by…actually typing in adminusers dot in front of each one…of these columns Because right now, there's only one…thing in my application called last_name, so it's not ambiguous.…
