You want a text column

Fred

yes… text area to write the article and then save the whole article
in DB
not sure which datatype to use

  1. varchar 2000 / 4000 …
  2. clob blob

You didn’t quite understand me. The column type you want (at least in
mysql, sqlite3, postgresql etc) is called text

Also, as I understand it the migration t.text (or t.column :text) will
map to an appropriate column type for the database being used (i.e. for
Oracle the column would be clob).

woops :D… ok let me check. Thanks a lot boss!

talking about text fields....
I have a text area of 30 columns in my html viewer of a text field
It works fine, for all CRUD operations. The only detail is about te text don,t include any controls ("\n" or "\l\n") for the lines was auto-breaked into the text area of the form.
I want to count the number of lines of this text area, but my code fails because I am counting "\n" marks.
I know this looks like an "HTML" issue (not Rails) but all suggestions will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance

You could count the number of lines like this:

lines = filed_name.split("\n").size

If I’m understanding what you are asking about.

Thanks, but This is the way I already use.
It doesn-t works for the lines you type over the size (in columns) of the text area. In  this case, the text wrap on the next line but no mark "\n" came with it.
In this cases we will get the count of 1 line and inside the text area we will visualize 2 lines.
