add selected and disabled options to grouped select

@josevalim josevalim merged commit b62f5a9 into rails:master Feb 20, 2012

Setting the selected option always makes the group select default to the first available option for me given the following code for simple_form:

= f.input :state_or_province, :collection => Country.order(:name), :as => :grouped_select, :group_method => :states, :selected => params[:passed][:school][:state_or_province]

@12eebok As far I remember this fix is only in the master branch.

@rafaelfranca You sure? Setting disabled seems to work just fine for me, I'm just having trouble with the selected option.

I'm not sure, maybe this is a SimpleForm issue. have you tried the plain grouped_collection_select?

The form_for equivalent:

f.grouped_collection_select :state_or_province, Country.order(:name), :states, :name, :id, :name, {:selected => params[:passed][:school][:state_or_province]}, {:disabled => true}

Produces exactly identical output with my default option being Zabul(first option in the collection) in both cases:

<select name="school[state_or_province]" id="school_state_or_province" class="grouped_select optional">
   <optgroup label="Afghanistan">
      <option value="15">Zabul</option>

Expected output given a key value of 448:

<optgroup label="Canada">
      <option selected="selected" value="448">Manitoba</option>

Unless I'm not passing the selected option correctly I don't think it's a simple_form issue.

Yes, this fixes is only to master.


rafaelfranca commented Sep 27, 2012

Here the relevant code see the last argument of the option_groups_from_collection_for_select method

Good to know, thank you for your time

If you want you can make a pull request with the tests in this one and you implementation (since the master branch and the 3-2-stable are very different in these helpers).

I could make it, but I don't have time now

I'd be willing to give it a shot, but I'm still a little green to Github and even Rails for that matter so I'll have to do a little reading first.
