I'm reading the following XML file using REXML in rails.


<event id='2288'>

<venue id='1'>

The code I use my controller is this:

@events = droot.elements.to_a("//event")
@venues = droot.elements.to_a("//venue")

This works and my data is loaded into each array.

But the problem I'm having is accessing a specific venue from that array.

I've tried stuff like this, but no luck:

<%= @venues[@id=1].elements['name'] %>

Can anybody help me access one particular element in the array? In my view I end up looping through each event and just need to access the associated venue. (This is from the zvents API) Thanks for any help!
