Hello, I have a strange behavior and don't know why. If I override attributes from AcitveRecord object like below: def end_date=(date) date = date.to_date unless date.blank? write_attribute(:end_date,date) end def end_date date = read_attribute(:end_date) I18n.localize(date) if date.present? end Everything will work fine but when I try call text_field in a form_for block I get the database value and ignore end_date getter. <%= f.text_field :end_date, :class=>"date", :size=>"10" %> The text_field will be filled with 2008-12-10 (mysql date) instead of 10/12/2008 ( I18n localized) Anyone know why we get this behavior?

Some idea? I still don't understand why text_field load values from database instead of model.rb
