I've got a model for "Location" with a title, description, and kind. The kind could be a "Bar", "Restaurant", etc. I wish to possess a choose box in my opinion using the various options with multiple choices available.

Wouldso would time passes about parsing the choose box during my controller and storing it within the database?

If you wish to use type as choose box someplace form, you can place the possible types within the Location class.

class Location < ActiveRecord::Base
  attr_accessible :type
  TYPES = ["Bar", "Restaurant"]
end

View

<%= f.select(:type, options_for_select(Location::TYPES.each {|y| y.capitalize! } ), { :prompt => "Select Type" }) %>
