Topic: Validation

I have a field that I need to validate the presence of an entry, but it's from a different model.

Here's the view code...

        <%= text_field_with_auto_complete :agency, :code, {:value => @line_item, :size => 31}, :skip_style => true %>

Here's the controller store/checkout

  def checkout
    @title = "Please enter your information to continue this purchase."
    # @cc_processor = Order.get_cc_processor
    # @agency_codes = Agency.find(:all)
    if request.get?
      unless @order.has_been_placed? then
        # Save standard form info
        logger.info("\n\nNEW ORDER INIT\n\n")
        initialize_new_order
      else
        logger.info("\n\nEXISTING ORDER INIT\n\n")
        initialize_existing_order
      end
      render :layout => 'checkout' and return
    elsif request.post?
      @agency_title = params[:agency_title]
      @agency_code = params[:agency][:code]
      @line_itemz = @order.order_line_items.find(:all)
      @line_itemz.each do |item|
        item.agency_code = @agency_code.strip
        item.shipping_total = 0.00
        item.save!
      end
      @line_itemzz = @order.order_line_items.find(:first)
      @line_itemzz.shipping_total = 10.95
      @line_itemzz.save!

      @line_items = @order.order_line_items.find(:all, :conditions => "agency_name = 1")
      @line_items.each do |item|
        item.agency_title = @agency_title
        item.save!
      end
      do_checkout()
    end
  end

Basically, I want to make sure that the person has selected a value for the agency code.  This agency code gets assigned to the item, and I'm struggling to get it to validate when it's being used in the store controller.

Also, this controller code is hideous, so any  advice is appreciated smile
