Is it possible to refer to a class in a module? #155

Our controller accesses the class via the module reference, i.e. Stockcar::Undercarriage. And the autocomplete statements fail, because a declaration like this:

autocomplete stockcar_undercarriage, model

gets parsed into something like this:


instead of


...which is what we'd need. We've tried bringing Undercarriage into the namespace, but it doesn't work: the autogenerated autocomplete method in the controller gives the error of undefined constant.

So - we're wondering if there's an autocomplete syntax that'd account for this. Thanks!

Try it this way:

autocomplete "members_university", :name, :class_name => "Members::University"

resources :welcome do
get :autocomplete_members_university_name, :on => :collection

<%= autocomplete_field_tag 'name', '', autocomplete_members_university_name_welcome_index_path, :size => 75 %>

Worked fine for me !
