Sometimes I want to show just one error, even when a field fails two or three validations. A custom validation method is easy enough, but the helpers are nice and concise. So, has anyone found a way of doing this with AR's validation helpers? The :if/:unless look promising, but its made harder by validations being applied in a random order. - Andy P.s. The validatable gem has the excellent 'level' option on it's validation helpers. http://validatable.rubyforge.org/ "Validations can be given levels. If a validation fails on a level the validations for subsequent levels will not be executed."

Often I just show the first element in the error_messages array unless that array is nil On Jan 24, 7:25 am, Andy W. <firstname.lastname@example.org>
