Hi all, I'm running into a brick wall trying to figure out my problem here. I have a model that has a boolean property called "paid". I'd like to add the following to my model: def after_save self.amount == self.splits.sum(:amount) ? self.update_attribute (:paid, true) : self.update_attribute(:paid, false) end The problem is, when I do this I get an error that my stack level is too deep. If I throw this in with one of the model's validators it works just fine, but that's not the right way to do this... I don't see how I'm recursing here, so any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

You should update by sql in after_save. On Sun, Jan 18, 2009 at 12:34 PM, Neal L <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote: > end > -- TWRUG Blog: http://blog.rubyonrails.org.tw CFC on Rails: http://zusocfc.blogspot.com Only two surfaces of a box: http://blog.pixnet.net/zusocfc

update_attribute saves the updated record, so after_save will be called again, hence the recursion. Colin
