I am looking for a way to create , ( and this is the part I really do
not know) a method a named_scope a something…
that allows me to create an query where I can combine several columns
from different tables.
In plain sql I could create a view and work with it; but I like one of
the concepts of named_scope that
allows me to use it with other to form the query I want.
I wish I could do something like this:
class Master < ActiveRecord::Base
named_scope :selected_fields, :select => "masters.col1, table1s.col3,
I've tried few things using joins and include but it seems like it is
always selecting the Master table only.
My playing around had not payed off at all, I’ve tried using :include,
:select , etc…
Can someone please give me some advice and maybe a sample code.
The documentation I've found is very simplistic.
Thank you very much,
