Tax a reserved word?


#1

Is tax a reserved word or am I sleep deprived??

I’m working on a shopping cart and have a table called sales_taxes (at
first i named it taxes).
I get the following error when i load the controller:

uninitialized constant SalesTaxis

This error occured while loading the following files:
sales_taxis.rb

I have no “taxis” anywhere in my code. I’ve even done a project search
in textmate trying to find it. Here’s my list action:

def list
@sales_tax_pages, @sales_taxes = paginate :sales_taxes, :per_page =>
10
end

I must be nuts or have a ghost in the machine.

Rename the file :slight_smile:

It could be that you’re trying to use SalesTaxis instead of SalesTaxes
:0)

I am not using SalesTaxis at all, that’s what’s so baffling.

I also did rename the file. It was originally named taxes, and it
returned an error just like this one did, but taxes was coming up taxis.

Interesting bug, if that’s the case - I’m surprised no-one’s spotted
it before. Hopefully you’ll be able to work around it by specifying
the table name in the model.

Assuming it is a bug, how do I specify a table name in the model? Or
maybe i should simply rename the table to taxis and see if it reverses
it. haha

Hopefully you’ll be able to work around it by specifying
the table name in the model.

It might be better to add tax/taxes to the inflections in
environment.rb.
