Enum

When I do scaffold generated code for a table that has “enum” in it and
i
goto to the “new” button, no options are given. Anyway i could automate
it
so i can get a drop down box when using enums?

OK, let me restate this, i looked at the wiki but it seems cumbersome,
isn’t
there a helper or plugin, or something to reduce code redundancy when
doing
enums?

I think mysql is really the only db that supports enums, that’s
probably why rails doesn’t bother with them.

Personally, I don’t think enums should be used, because my opinion is
that the data validation should be done at a higher level (in this case
ActiveRecord).

So just use a varchar in your table and use validates_inclusion_of in
your model.
