Any thoughts on this one guys? How do I reinitialize an already
initialized model object in my controller in one shot rather than
manually initializing each attribute? In other words, I do a find like
user = User.find(id)
Now I want to reinitialize the user object by using the params[“user”]
but I’d like to intialize it in a way that calls my model’s equality
operator to do some sepecial initializations defined as so:
In my model
I need to somehow invoke the after_* and before_* callbacks and these
apparently don’t get invoked if I do an update like so:
user.update(…). It seems like I must do a user.save! to invoke them.
I’m doing a <model_name>.update(…) but I’m noticing that my
before_update callback is not being called. If I do a find and then a
save!, I notice that it is called. The problem with a find and save in
my case is that I’m not able to set all my attributes in one shot by
saving params[“user”] and since I can’t do this, my overloaded equality
def: user=(…) in my model does not get called which I need to call.
Any help on either of these methods would be great!.
