ActiveRecord::Relation

Hi
I have just started learning Rails3 (ruby1.92, Rails3.0.5) and watched
railscast episode 202. I tried
Article.where(:hidden => true) from console. I have a confusion there
since the cast says that , the above statement execute query in the view
when iterated. I did not understand that. I got result from query in the
console it self when executed Article.where(:hidden => true). Please
comment

Thanks

Hi
i am talking exactly about this. Now only I found this

https://rails.lighthouseapp.com/projects/8994/tickets/4476-lazy-loading-broken-since-beta3

  I am getting this not only in console but application also. Has 

anything changed in Rails3.0.5?

The issue is that the console wants to print the result of the
expression you type, which forces ActiveRecord to execute the query.

Hi Fred
Thanks . I tried from sample application also like
def index
@articles = Article.where(:hidden => true)
puts @articles.inspect
-------------
end

  Here also the query executed. I dont know why.

because you called inspect on @articles

Then how can I check that it is not triggering sql. I did not
understand it properly. Could you explain more please?

Look in your development log and ensure that you don’t touch the scope

  • when you do anything other than adding conditions, joins etc. to the
    scope you force active record to evaluate it.

Fred

the difference might be illustrated by the following:

Article.where(:hidden => true).to_sql

vs.

Article.where(:hidden => true).all.to_sql

in the first, you are able to get the (currently un-executed) sql
statement

in the second, you will get an undefined_method error because having
been evaluated, you now have an array (or a proxy to an array) instead
of a scope.

does that help?
