model2.check2

I believe that You cannot call a controller model from another
controller in this way. If you need to do this it probably means that
the method should be in a model or in a module in the lib directory.
Or are you actually trying to redirect to a different action rather
than just call a method?

Colin

You can call like model2.check2, if the method check2 is a class level
method.

Write method like below. So that you can this method using
model2.check2.

def self.check2
puts “check2”
end

Sorry I misread the question and the reply above is rubbish anyway. I
thought you were wanting to call a controller method from another
controller. I must remember to engage brain before typing.

hi Colin

That is not a problem

You have the mind to help that is far more enough even if you misjudged

Thank you guys

You save me

If you want to call check1 from another model/controller then you can do
any
of the following:

=> make check1 class method

model1.rb

def self.check1
end

model2.rb

def check2.rb
Model1.check1
end

=> or if you want to keep it as a instance method (or it depends on the
state of object)

model1.rb

def check1
end

model2.rb

def check2.rb
@model1.check1
end

I think that should be self.name == “Karthik”

Please guide me how to do

def check?( a_name )
self.name == a_name
end

Then check1.check?( “karthik” )

If you call it immediately after check1.new then the name will always
be the default one for the name attribute of course. check1.check?(
“karthik” ) means hey object check1, is your name karthik?

Hi Karthik,

There are a lot of mistakes (bug) in your code, but I think
philosophically
too you are wrong.

Firstly, you have “=” instead of “==” in your check? method. And if the
word
“karthik” is constant you don’t need to pass it. I think this solves
your
problem.

But please do read some detailed tutorial or preferably a book on rails,
because I think you are missing too many points here.

Does Presenter have a role method ? if not then you’ve got your
answer.

Karthik, I have a two suggestions which I would like you consider very
seriously.

  1. Get hold of the Pragmatic Bookshelf book Programming Ruby: The
    Pragmatic Programmer’s Guide, downloadable as an e-book. Spend a week
    working through it till you have a good grasp of Ruby.

  2. Get the book Agile Web D. with Rails, 3rd Edition and
    spend another week (or more) working through that to give you a good
    grasp of Rails.

This may seem like a lot of wasted time but in the long run it will
save you (and us) time and effort and will allow you develop reliable
applications much more effectively than you can at the moment.
