When/where does Rails convert “params” used to populate a model object
from a form, into their correct types in the model object??? (i.e.
from “string”) What part of rails does this?
I have a form upload and in my create method where I go
:@graph_options = GraphOptions.new(params[:graph_options])" it is not
doing the type conversion, as the attributes remain as strings.
Note I am using BaseWithoutTable
class GraphOptions < ActiveRecord::BaseWithoutTable
column :label_title, :string
column :start_date, :date
column :end_date, :date
column :granularity, :integer
column :chart_type, :integer
