Belongs_to not working as

Hi,

I have a model tests_user and score which are associated with each other
by
has_one and belongs_to association.

class TestsUser < ActiveRecord::Base
has_one :score, :foreign_key => :reg_no
end

class TestsUser < ActiveRecord::Base
belongs_to :tests_user, :foreign_key => :reg_no
end

where reg_no is a unique field in both the table!

score = Score.find(:first) gives me the first record from score table

Now as i do score.tests_user it gives nill.

and same with if i do
test_user = TestsUser.find(:first)

  • then test_user.score is showing as nil…*

Is this issue because of the foreign_key is not the default id!!!

class TestUser
has_one :score
end

class Score
belongs_to :test_user
end

score table will has id,test_user_id,score

if you want to get a user score

just give test_user.score

In addition to what colin has said, with what you have there rails
will assume there is a reg_no column on the tests_user table which
references the id column on the other table. If it needs to point at a
column other that id then you need to use the primary_key option in
addition to the foreign_key option.

That should be class Score.

belongs_to :tests_user, :foreign_key => :reg_no

You only need reg_no in the scores table

score = Score.find(:first) gives me the first record from score table

Now as i do score.tests_user it gives nill.

test_user = TestsUser.find(:first)

There should be no problem with a non-default foreign key. What do
you see if you do
score = Score.find(:first).reg_no
It should be an id of a TestsUser

Thanks all,

Actually reg_no column is present in both the models.
and was not mentioned as primary key in any of the model.

Thanks Colin , Fred for the quick response!!
