Unique indexes

I have a unique index on Channelnote.note.
In my controller, I go to save the Channelnote.
But, if the note portion already exists, it naturally throws an error.
How can I alleviate this, so that it only saves if the note is NOT
already in the table? Thanks, RVince

    cnote = Channelnote.new

cnote.note = params[‘channelnotes’]
cnote.channel_id = @channel.id
cnote.associate_id = current_associate.id
g=cnote.save

begin
cnote.save!
rescue
flash[:notice] = ‘channel note failed to save’
end

or you could check to see if it exists before trying to save it.

cn = Channelnote.find_by_note( params[:channelnotes] )
cnote.save unless cn

cn = Channelnote.find_by_note( params[:channelnotes] )
cnote.save unless cn

Or put a validates_uniqueness_of in the app.

You could use find_or_create_by_note, too
