I have the following code:

validates_format_of :password, :with => /^\w+$/, :message => ‘Password must be alphanumeric’, :on => :save

In order to get that message to display itself, do I have to say
“!” or will “” also require that I validate the
password. The reason I ask, is that I am doing some updating on a “User”
object and instead of notifiying me when that there is a problem, the
action simply does nothing and I am left wondering why the database
wasn’t updated. Thanks for your help,


Are you checking the return code of save?
