I have a price attribute in my model which I need to validate as a
positive number if the attribute price_terms.requires_value is equal to
'Y', otherwise price can be blank or zero.  Price_terms is a select list
which my model table belongs_to.

How do I do this? - I tried doing this:

validates_numericality_of :price, :if =>
self.price_term.requires_value.upcase == 'Y'

But that doesn't work...

Thanks in advance,

Try this:

validates_numericality_of :price, :if => { |r|
r.price_term.requires_value.upcase == 'Y' }
