This almost feels like a bug to me, since false is not nil. (i don't think!) Using v_p_o on a boolean field fails validation if the field is passed with 'false'. It passes validation in the case of true. How can I validate _presence_of a boolean if it is submitted false?

You should use validates_inclusion_of. See: http://www.railsbrain.com/api/rails-2.2.2/doc/inde... Regards, Craig On Mon, Jan 12, 2009 at 5:53 PM, Taylor Strait <

I searched google and ruby-forum, but who would have thought to look in the API docs: "If you want to validate the presence of a boolean field (where the real values are true and false), you will want to use validates_inclusion_of :field_name, :in => [true, false] This is due to the way Object#blank? handles boolean values. false.blank? # => true" Thanks.
