Getting the ID of a newly saved record

Quick question:

How do I get the ID of a newly saved record right after its been saved
with the .save method?

For example: @message.save

@message.id is blank. I'm sure this is an easy answer, thanks in
advance.

Hey,

the easy answer is: did the save() fail because of validation errors?

You may want to just double check that the ID field on your table is
called "id" and not something else, and that it is set to
auto-increment.
