Just purchased the book RailsSpace (Rough Cut Version) and I am going
through the tutorial for the user model. It says to add the code below
for email validation to your user model, which I did.
It then tells you to create a username email and password in IRB to
test it which i did. But each time it says the email is not a valid
email even though i have tried 5 or 6 different emails etc.
Went through the code with a fine toothed comb, tried a couple other
regex's i found on google, but to no avail.
Anyone take a look at this for me, and see if they spot anything
class User < ActiveRecord::Base
# Max & min lengths for all fields
SCREEN_NAME_MIN_LENGTH = 4
SCREEN_NAME_MAX_LENGTH = 20
PASSWORD_MIN_LENGTH = 4
PASSWORD_MAX_LENGTH = 40
EMAIL_MAX_LENGTH = 50
SCREEN_NAME_RANGE = SCREEN_NAME_MIN_LENGTH..SCREEN_NAME_MAX_LENGTH
PASSWORD_RANGE = PASSWORD_MIN_LENGTH..PASSWORD_MAX_LENGTH
validates_uniqueness_of :screen_name, :email
validates_length_of :screen_name, :within => SCREEN_NAME_RANGE
validates_length_of :password, :within => PASSWORD_RANGE
validates_length_of :email, :maximum => EMAIL_MAX_LENGTH
:with => /^[A-Z0-9_]*$/i,
:message => "must contain only letters, " +
"numbers, and underscores"
:with => /^[A-Z0-9._%-]+@([A-Z0-9-]+\.)+[A-Z]
:message => "must be a valid email address"
errors.add(:email, "must be valid.") unless
errors.add(:screen_name, "cannot include spaces.") if
