Topic: Active Scaffold
I'm an experienced programmer but a Ruby and Rails virgin. I like the look of Rails (having spent several years of misery developing web apps in PHP). In particular I like the initial look of Active Scaffold and got stuff working very quickly.
But there is a dearth of tutorials to get you past the beginner stage.
In particular, I am at my wits end trying to get the ActiveRecord validation methods (e.g. validates_length_of :name, :maximum=>40) passed into the app using ActiveScaffold.
If I put the statement into the UsersController class it is rejected as an unknown method.
If I put it into the model User<ActiveRecord class, it is accepted but ignored. (I think that ActiveScaffold builds its own model on the fly).
Can anyone help?
