Creating an escaped JOIN?

Hi,

When creating a custom find for a model, with AR it is possible to do
something like:

:conditions => [‘user_id = ?’, params[:id]]

However, I would like to know if it is possible to do the same when
specifying a JOIN:

:joins => [‘LEFT OUTER JOIN orders ON (items.order_id = orders.id AND
orders.user_id = ?’, params[:id]]

I tried the above expression, but unfortunately, Rails didn’t replace
the question mark with its escaped value.

Any idea if this is possible? I need to move some filtering from the
WHERE clause into the ON clause and have it all escaped.

Placeholders are not supported there indeed.

You cannot work with regular AR association API calls right? For
example:

untested

user = User.find(params[:id])
items = user.orders.map(&:items).flatten.uniq

or say:

untested

items = Item.all(
:conditions => {‘users.id’ => params[:id]},
:joins => {:order => :user}
)

If not, you can still extract an integer from params[:id] and safely
interpolate. That’s easy with Integer() or #to_i.

and more generally the connection object’s quote method (and variants)
are useful. See also the sanitize_sql method.

Hi Fred,

sanitize_sql is the way to go, then I simply evaluate what it spits me
out inside my :joins value.
