I have searched many sites for the solution. And maybe there is none
or more likely it is so easy no one mentions it.
The problem is this. I have an class called Event which has a HABTM
relationship with Note.
I can do the following with no problems
e = Event.new
e[‘name’] = ‘test’
e[‘state’] = ‘started’
But I cannot access the notes attribute in the same way
e.notes << Note.find(:all)
e.notes.size #=> 11
e[‘notes’] #=> nil
Why is it I can access e.name as e[‘name’] but not e.notes as e
And is there a work around to access notes only knowing the string
