i am trying to overwrite a value in a model so that
the new value is beeing saved in the database instead of the one the
typed into the form.
this is my controller
class Movie < ActiveRecord::Base
self.creation_date = "2000-01-01"
(it's only some testing for getting a feeling for the basic way
the create form is generated by the standard scaffold :movie
in my admin controller.
the new movie is beeing created but it uses the value
from the form, not my new "overwritten" one.
it's obviously a simple question but iam stucked now for
about 2.5 houres shame on me...
