If condition on validates_presence_of is not working


#1

class Event < ActiveRecord::Base
attr_accessor :step_processing

validates_presence_of :name,:description , :if => (:step_processing

end

class TestController < ApplicationController

def bar
@event = Event.new
@event.step_processing = 4
@event.name = ‘foo’
@event.save
end

end

In the above code :step_processing a non-database field. It’s just there
to
control the processing. The validation should take place only when the
step_processing is ‘4’ but in reality it’s done every single time. I
guess I
am goofing up the syntax or something like that.

Thanks.
