I didn’t get much traction on this so I am trying again…
I am working on an application where there are many different screens to
access the data in a particular record/row. I have links to each data
entry screen at the top. Is there a way to detect whether the current
hash has been changed from the stored record so I can prompt the user if
they attempt to change screens without having saved their changes to the
I have added a field to my db called ‘updated_at’ and the db in the
value is put into the current hash…but that value doesn’t change if I
change another value on an input screen - unless I save, which of course
is what I am trying to detect…the need to save.
Is there a method for doing this?
