What do you mean "get" the methods?

Colin

Hi Peter,

Thanks for quick reply..

This is working fine.but it is return all the association and the
corresponding model name....

like [:has_many, :site_users]

but i want association methods like site_user_ids and site_user_ids=

Hmmm, I don’t see them in that datastructure. I presume they are defined
automatically, based on the name of the association, in this code starting at:

https://github.com/rails/rails/blob/master/activerecord/lib/active_record/associations/builder/collection_association.rb#L57

In general … I think it is better not to touch the _id fields manually and
use other association methods (without _id) if possible. E.g. the
‘build’ or ‘delete’ functions on the has_many association.

HTH,

Peter
