I have a phone field in my table. But in my form i have two text boxes to get the phone number and the country code like below
Enter country code ----- Enter phone code ------
In my table i have to save the phone code field after joining the above values with "-" symbol.
Example => 0225-25874255
I dont have table field for country_code . So i created like below attr_accessor :phone , :country_code
You don't need attr_accessor for :phone since you already have a phone column (if i understand correctly). When used like this attr_accessor overwrites the accessors that ActiveRecord provides.
