does someone know how i controll the automatic messages populated by the
validates_blahs? i think i swept my eyes across the fact that they may
be in the enviorment.rb file, but now i can’t find anything (annoying).
how do i controll the error_messages_for … ?
thanks for any references, etc.
What I do in my apps, is this:
validates_[whatever] params,params, :message=>‘You misstyped something
Hope it helps.
there is a problem i’ve been trying to solve for a couple of hours now,
and after some useless googeling and searching around, i haven’t come up
with anything substansial - i thought the forum might help me.
say i have a string and want to display only the first 10 characters or
shortstring = “this is a very long string object”[0…10]
shortstring = "this is a " # which is great
but if i use the same method on a utf8 string, i get some weird
characters popping in there, sometimes yes, sometimes no. from looking
around it seems that because every character is two bytes(as apposed to
1 in regular encoding) there is sometimes a sum of odd/even characters,
and then the [0…10] doesn’t work correctly, populating wierd
characters. (same deal goes for the String#slice method)
the final result i need, in essence of this message is this:
“very long string in utf8” to become
without weird characters.
any help, much appreciated.
