Changes method: displayed nil to blank change

Hi

Here I am trying to get the details of changed fields in update method

I got those fields by changes method. #obj.changes

But problem is that I got changes in following ways even when I am not
updating anything.

obj.changes
{"address"=>[nil, ""]}

This is what I don't want. I want only those changes which are text to
blank or blank to text or text to text..

Can anybody help me ?

Thanks

Just filter out the ones where the two array entries are nil and "".
Note that blank? will probably be useful here.

Thanks for reply. But how can I filter this one?
Currently I am checking the field change and avoid nil to blank changes.

like if !obj.changes["address] != [nil,""]
               ---More ----
     end

Note: There are multiple fields to check.

Run through the hash first removing items for which both elements of
its array respond true to .blank? Have a look at Hash.delete_if for
example.
