Updating boolean field in model from check box value


i am having a bit of trouble with updating the values of a boolean field
in my database/model given the value returned by a check box

i am generating the check box as follows:

check_box(“user”, “enabled”)

which produces

no problems there - it is reading the value out of the model/database
and checking the box correctly

n.b. the database stores a 1 for true and 0 for false

however, if i uncheck the checkbox, for example, and update using this
method in my controller:

def update
@user = User.find(params[:id])
if @user.update_attributes(params[:user])

it doesn’t seem to commit the change

i have tried using the alternative check_box method specifying the
checked and unchecked values as “true” and “false” but this doesn’t work

any ideas? thanks

don’t worry - got it sorted!
