Copy column table before save


#1

Hi,

I would like to copy one column to another before it’s saved.

For example:
<% form … %>
<%= %>f.text-field: about %>
<%= f.text-field: price %>
<% end %>

Could I copy price to another table column before it is saved?
THank you.

You can do this by using the before_save call back.

In your model, just define a method called before_save

def before_save
other_column = price
end
