I have a Player model with some validations. I am using a partial form to create and update player info. I have the following like in the view <%= error_messages_for 'player' %> On create the validation errors are correctly displayed, but if a validation error fails update, I get an ugly stack trace error that looks like this validation failed: Last name can't be blank RAILS_ROOT: /home/maulin/projects/sports_ladder Application Trace | Framework Trace | Full Trace /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/activerecord-2.2.2/lib/active_record/validations.rb:1021:in `save_without_dirty!' /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/activerecord-2.2.2/lib/active_record/dirty.rb:87:in `save_without_transactions!' /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/activerecord-2.2.2/lib/active_record/transactions.rb:150:in `save!' /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/activerecord-2.2.2/lib/active_record/connection_adapters/abstract/database_statements.rb:66:in `transaction' /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/activerecord-2.2.2/lib/active_record/transactions.rb:129:in `transaction' /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/activerecord-2.2.2/lib/active_record/transactions.rb:138:in `transaction' /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/activerecord-2.2.2/lib/active_record/transactions.rb:150:in `save!' /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/activerecord-2.2.2/lib/active_record/transactions.rb:158:in `rollback_active_record_state!' /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/activerecord-2.2.2/lib/active_record/transactions.rb:150:in `save!' /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/activerecord-2.2.2/lib/active_record/base.rb:2476:in `update_attributes!' app/controllers/players_controller.rb:41:in `update' why aren't the validation erros being displayed nicely on update?

> why aren't the validation erros being displayed nicely on update? I was able to figure this out...If the record was not successfully audated because of a validation error, I needed to render :action => :edit. It now shows the errors nicely.

I think this is a good example of how we should behave on a mailing list... too many people figure out an answer and never respond back :) Thanks On Tue, Feb 10, 2009 at 9:29 PM, Maulin pa <firstname.lastname@example.org
