Find_by_content result set

Hi Guys

I’m experiencing with AAF and Ferret with the intention of deploying
into the site that I am working on now.

So I setup AAF to index 3 fields that I have in this model and i tried
doing a find_by_contents and it returned the

#<FerretMixin::Acts::ARFerret::SearchResults:0xb74b5bec
@total_hits=1157, @results=[#<Payprofile:0xb74cc39c
@attributes={"add…

but it seems that there is no way to access the result set… I read
somewhere that it’s not implement yet… So any knows when the release
will be. and until there is there any workaround for this.

I know that you can do a find_by_contents_id, but that returns the model
id set, and then you need to build the result set from the id.

Thanks for any advice!

Ok… after digging more into acts_as_ferret.rb, I realize I can add an
attr_accessor for @results

Any reason/problem that I shouldn’t be doing that that since it was not
left out in the latest release?

Another problem I’m having now is to sort the result by using the
find_options

find_options is a hash passed on to active_recordâ??s find when retrieving
the data from db, useful to i.e. prefetch relationships.

but I wasn’t able to get it to work with :order by doing this…

moto=Pay.find_by_contents(“motorola”,:limit=>:all,:order=>“salary DESC”)

anyone has similar problems too? thanks for helping!

There’s no need to do this, as the SearchResults class hands through all
method calls to @results by overriding method_missing. Just use the
SearchResults instance as you would use an array.

Another problem I’m having now is to sort the result by using the
find_options

find_options is a hash passed on to active_recordâ??s find when retrieving
the data from db, useful to i.e. prefetch relationships.

but I wasn’t able to get it to work with :order by doing this…

moto=Pay.find_by_contents(“motorola”,:limit=>:all,:order=>“salary DESC”)

try
moto=Pay.find_by_contents(“motorola”,{},{ :limit=>:all,:order=>“salary
DESC” })

there’s two optional hash arguments to find_by_contents, the first one
being ferret_options, and the second one the find_options. As this
problem arises quite often, I start thinking about merging them together
into one in future versions.

cheers,
Jens
