In activities#new, I navigate away and select a location (among other
things) on a map. At this point, the @activity is still missing
attributes and is invalid. What is the best practice for preserving
the state of this invalid record until I return to it? I could:
Make all validations conditional depending on the state of the
record. But this seems pretty clunky. I want to be able to call
#valid? and get the correct answer.
Create a supper class RawActivity with no validations and then let
Activity inherit from it when it’s ready to be saved. This also looks
like a messy solution.
Dump all the @activity attributes into the session, reconstitute
them in the Location controller. Find the location, dump the
@location attributes into session. Go back to the Activity controller
and stitch it all together. Yuck.
to be saved.
Am I missing something? What’s the best practice?
