How to describe a decimal field in Rails scaffolding

Hi,

Can anyone explain how to use decimals in Rails scaffolding ?

When I enter the scaffold command :

ruby script/generate scaffold payment amount:decimal, :precision =>
10, :scale => 2 event:string datum:date

nothing happens. No error message, no generating of files, nothing.

When I enter the scaffold command :

ruby script/generate scaffold payment amount:decimal event:string
datum:date

and then open the generated migrate file and add precision and
scale :

t.decimal :amount, :precision => 10, :scale => 2

then an amount column of type decimal(10,2) is created in my MySQL db.

Is it not possible to describe the precision and scale in the scaffold
command ?

Thanks

I tried to my best. Since there are no option to specify it, the only
way to do it by manually editing in the migration file.
Revert back me if u find any more solution.

I had tried to my best. Since there were no option to specify the
additional parameters. It has to be manually specified in the
migration file.
Revert back me if u find any solution to it.
