need clarification

hi

i have a Project & Task model.

hi

i have a Project & Task model.

########
Project model has that additional method:

def self.lasttask(project, sort="DESC")
Task.find(:first, :conditions=>['project_id = ? ',
project.id], :order => "somedate #{sort}" )
end

As a side note this would be better as a named_scope.

########
The Task model has one attribute called "specialtask" which is
boolean.

Now, i can do this in the console:
p=Project.find(1)
Project.lasttask(p).specialtask

TRUE or FALSE

meaning its working. But doing it in the view it throws me an error
telling me specialtask is unknown.
<%= debug Project.lasttask(p).specialtask %>

//the debug shows cleary the attribute.

I don't understand, first you say it throws an error, then you say it
clearly shows the attribute.
Can you post the code around the error and the exact error and stack
dump please?
