how do i access attriutes when using eager_load has_many

Hi
this code:

x = Project.where(‘status=?’,‘active’).eager_load(:tasks)

produces a nice query, in sql everythig is ok, all columns have been alias as t0_r1,…

but how do i access it? my loops are failing when tryin to access the associates attribute:

x = Project.where(‘status=?’,‘active’).eager_load(:tasks)

x.each do |rec|

p rec.id #<< OK

p rec.tasks.id # << OUCH

end

pls advise

thx

1. "OUCH"? What does that mean? You'll generally get more useful
    answers if you show an actual error message. And for that matter
    googling that error will frequently give you pointers towards solving
    it yourself.

2. I would *guess* that "tasks" is a collection; do you expect that to
    have an id? Or are you looking for the id of an individual task?

    If in doubt, try: p rec.tasks.class

ok, u r right - i was just frustrated because i was going back and forth between joins , includes etc - here the ‘error’

undefined method `id’ for #Task::ActiveRecord_Associations_CollectionProxy:0xc4686a4

p rec.tasks.id

ok, if i do this then i can acces the associated records:
x = Project.where(‘status=?’,‘active’).eager_load(:tasks)

x.each do |rec|

p rec.id #<< OK

rec.tasks each do |y|

p y.id

end

end

i guess i was just expecting a flat table because thats what i saw in the mysql query result pane

thx again
