ActiveRecord attributes

I was doing the following at the console to figure out why the created
at
attribute is not working.

I found out the following:

sr = StockReceiving.find :first

=> #<StockReceiving:0x3651ce4 @attributes={“discount”=>“0”,
“modified_at”=>nil,

“created_by”=>“admin”, “purchase_order_id”=>“14”,
“supplier_invoice”=>“dfgfdg”,

“warehouse_id”=>“2”, “id”=>“11”, “modified_by”=>nil, “supplier_id”=>“1”,
"create

d_at"=>“2006-11-11 18:11:17”}>

sr

=> #<StockReceiving:0x3651ce4 @attributes={“discount”=>“0”,
“modified_at”=>nil,

“created_by”=>“admin”, “purchase_order_id”=>“14”,
“supplier_invoice”=>“dfgfdg”,

“warehouse_id”=>“2”, “id”=>“11”, “modified_by”=>nil, “supplier_id”=>“1”,
"create

d_at"=>“2006-11-11 18:11:17”}>

sr.attributes

=> {“discount”=>0.0, “modified_at”=>nil, “purchase_order_id”=>14,
“created_by”=>

“admin”, “supplier_invoice”=>“dfgfdg”, “warehouse_id”=>2, “id”=>11,
"modified_by

"=>nil, “supplier_id”=>1, “created_at”=>nil}

When I show all the attributes of the object, it does not have a
created_at
attribute. I would like to know

what’s goin on. Here is the model:

class StockReceiving < ActiveRecord::Base

has_many :details , :class_name => ‘StockReceivingDetail’

def before_create

self.warehouse_id = '2'

self.created_by = 'admin'

end

def before_update

self.modified_by = 'admin'

self.modified_at = Date.now

end

end

Thank you in advance.

See http://wiki.rubyonrails.com/rails/pages/Timestamping

created_at, created_on, updated_at and updated_on, are handled
automatically by ActiveRecord. Just create them as DATETIME fields.

Or more specifically, the xxx_at should be DATETIME, the xxx_on should
just be DATE.

It’s only a convention. ActiveRecord won’t populate XXX_at or XXX_on
fields
with appropriate values (unless XXX is “created” or “updated”).
