I need to change/adapt of the date and float numbers the user enters:
dd/mm/yyyy I have to change into yyyy-mm-dd
and numbers, replace the , with the .
1245,85 => 1245.85
I thought the best place was using the before_validation() but here the
objects come with standard Rails formats, and the date is wrong, and the
numbers are also wrong.
Now I’m doing all the stuff in the Controller:
@transaction.amount = params[:transaction][:amount].to_s.gsub(’,’,
But this is a pain If I have to duplicate code for new and update
So I tried to move the code into the model before_validation but there
the self.data and self.amount are wrong, as Rails adapt them to what
they think it’s the standard way …
In the controller I can get the fresh value from params, but in the
model it doesn’t exist …
what’s the best solution to my problem ?
