<%= todo_list.todo_items.size %> producing undefined method `name' for nil:NilClass

Here is my code snippet:

<% @todo_lists.each do |todo_list| %> <li id="<%= dom_id(todo_list) %>" class="clearfix"> <%= link_to todo_list_todo_items_path(todo_list), class: "row" do %> <div class="small-10 medium-11 columns truncate" title="<%= todo_list.title %>"><%= todo_list.title %></div> <div class="small-2 medium-1 columns"> <span class="label round"> <%= todo_list.todo_items.size %> </span> </div> <% end %> </li> <% end %>

Hinesh Patel , I had the same problem and was able to fix it by changing todo_list.todo_items.size to todo_list.todo_items.count.

However, I still have many test suite errors. I'll post a solution once I have it.

Hinesh Patel, To confirm, my solution above resolved itโ€”all other failures were resolved further on in the course.

Hope that helped!
