Her is the thing.
Let's say, I have model "Phonebook", which has two fields "phone_number"
I also have view, with form which asks for "full_name" and (important
here) couple of fields:
They all need to be concated like
phone_int (phone_area) phone_number ext. phone_extension
phone_int = +1
phone_area = 415
phone_number = 321-2345
phone_extension = 101
it need to become
phone_number = +1 (415) 321-2345 ext. 101
Do not ask me why the hell am I doing this thing, it's just an example,
and yes, there are some legacy database structure cases where something
like that has to be done
So here in controller I am doing
@phonebook.update_attributes(params[:phonebook]) and fields phone_int,
phone_area, phone_number, phone_extension are defined with attr_accessor
in the model.
So, where do I do the concatenation process? In the model? Do I do it
before calling update_attributes in controller? What will be the best
I see it can have it place in the model, but where should I put it
exactly so it'll work out before update_attributes?
