I seem to be missing something basic here.
I am trying to call a function from my application layout that will
return me a hash of the roles for the user currently signed in. Here
is the simplified code I have in ApplicationHelper module
I call get_cur_user_roles from my layout file. When I bring up the web
page I get an error that says
undefined method `to_h' for ["school_admin", "General2"]:Array
However, if I capture the same code in a test.rb file (adding a
require 'enumerator' at the top of the file for the enum_with_index
function) and run it with "ruby test.rb" it seems to work fine.
Any thoughts on why the code above is not seeing the Array instance
method to_h in the ApplicaitonHelper? I also tried changing it to
class method by changing the declaration to self.to_h but get the same
error. Somehow the to_h method is not visible to the ["school_admin",
"General2"] Array and I don't understand why. I have tried restarting
the server but get the same error.
Thanks for help/pointers.
