I’ve posted regarding this topic previously…
I’m using a case statement to calculate age based on the age unit
chosen by the user. It is working great inside the web application,
but for any age less than a year, it saves a zero to the database. My
age field in the DB is an int, so I can’t figure out why it is doing
the correct calculation in the model, but then returning a zero in the
save? The only thing I’m doing different is on the year calculation,
so maybe I need some variation of that for the rest of the units? As
always, any and all help and suggestions are appreciated!!
unit = read_attribute(:ageunit_id)
m = read_attribute(:dob)
if not m.nil?
if not dod.nil?
seconds = dod - m
s = seconds.to_i
case unit # minutes when 316 minutes = s / 60 # hours when 315 minutes = s / 60 hours = min / 60 # days when 314 minutes = s / 60 hours = minutes / 60 days = hours / 24 # months when 313 minutes = s / 60 hours = minutes / 60 days = hours / 24 months = days / 30 # years when 312 minutes = s / 60 hours = minutes / 60 days = hours / 24 months = days / 30 years = dod.year - dob.year-(dob.to_time.change(:year
=> dod.year) > dod ? 1 : 0)
