I am new to the language and trying to add a couple of simple tests on
user input, followed by a DB query, then using the returned values
(where the problem lies)
I first run a find_by_sql similar to this
@my_names = modelname.find_by_sql
I then check to see if NO returns via
if @my_names.size == 0
My question is, how do I access the values that are now in the array. I
seem to be able to set session variables by way of
session[:whatever] = @my_names.column_name
but am unable to perform a if construct that looks like
if @my_names.column_name == “TEST VALUE”
I keep getting an undefined method error when I try to run the code.
Thanks very much in advance for any assistance with this.
