Handling file uploads & mixing class and instance vars


#1

Hey Everybody,

This is the only way I’ve been able to get my file
upload to work:

class Item < ActiveRecord::Base

def file=(upload)
@file=upload
end

def after_create
File.open(“public/items/#{self.id}.jpg”, “w”) {
|f| f.write(@file.read) }
end

end

The upload form has “file_field ‘item’, ‘file’, …”.
I’ve tried using self.file (causes a stack error), and
@id (empty). It just feels wrong mixing class and
instance vars ;). Am I missing something?

Thanks,
csn
