I have a login screen and I wish to normalize the login name for the purposes of INSERT and SELECT. In the model I have: def username=(name) # keycase is a local extension of class String. write_attribute(:username, name.keycase) end The attribute username of an new user is indeed stored as a normalized string. However, when logging on and I input the username in capital letters then the select fails, because the param value of username is not normalized. The question is, where do I perform this manipulation for the login? In the controller? In the view? Or is there a way to accomplish this in the model?
