How to create an object in one model at the same time as another

Hi,
I'm using Devise and Cancan in my project. I'm a beginner still. I'm
trying to create a new Profile object each time a new user is created.
Anyone know where to do this, as there is no new action in User
controller.

I have a user model and a Profile model

User model:
user has_one :profile

Profile model:
profile belongs_to :user

How to create an object in one model at the same time as another

use a model callback - http://api.rubyonrails.org/classes/ActiveRecord/Callbacks.html

:after_create :create_profile

private

def create_profile

end

Have a look at the Rails Guide on ActiveRecord Associations and you
will see that for a has_one association there will be a
create_association method defined for you. So in the create action
for a user, after it is successfully saved you can call create_profile
to create and save a new profile. Alternatively, as Jodi has
suggested, you could put this in an after_create callback.

Thanks. The after_create callback works nicely as I have no new or
create actions in the users controller using Devise/Cancan. Not sure
where they but thats another weekend project!
