How to convert url /contr../action/6.0 to /cont../action/6?


#1

I am using a legacy db which has the column for the
primary key defined as a decimal number rather than
an integer, even though only integer values are stored
in in.

When rails generates a url it is of the form
/controller/action/123.0

This works, but I would prefer

/controller/action/123

What would be the best way to automatically force the
convesion to integers? I have attempted to
redefined the ‘id’ method in the model to convert
the value to an integer, but this does not work.

Thanks in advance,
donmc

Try accessing the value before it’s type casted. Example,

account.id_before_type_cast
