I have a class named Source and a controller named SourceController etc. When I use Source.column_names in the view all names except names ending in _id is listed, although according to the documentation all names should be listed When I use Source.column_names in the source controller it lists correctly all names also the ones ending in id. When I first call Source.column_names in the controller then it lists all names also in the view when I use Source.column_names. Is this a bug in rails ? Is the calls Source reserved ? Has anyone had the same problem ? Is there anyway to solve this problem in a better way than the fisx I use by first calling Source.column_names in the controller ?

i really can't answer your questions regarding why this happens, but for the HOW_TO part i'd suggest to just do it like this: # controller: @columns = Source.column_names # view: <%= @columns %> this respects MVC.
