What I’m working with is Events. Some events are multi-day, so to track
that, I want to use acts_as_tree.
The problem is this: for pretty much any attribute, I want to return the
attribute as normal, except when it’s nil.Then I want to return the
parent’s attribute. I’ve tried experimenting with alias_method. I can
upgrade to rails 1.2 to use alias_attribute if that’s what I need to do.
Can anyone point me in the right direction on this?
