send(column.name) comparison problems

I am having trouble with what I thought would be a simple equality
comparison.

Here is the relevant code:

<% for ticket in @tickets %>
  <tr>
  <% for column in Ticket.content_columns %>
    <% if column.human_name == "Status" %>
      <% if ticket.send(column.name).eql?("true") %>
        <td>Open</td>
      <% else %>
        <td>Closed</td>
      <% end %>
    <% else %>
      <td><%=h ticket.send(column.name) %></td>
    <% end %>
  <% end %>

My problem is as follows:

if ticket.send(column.name).eql?("true") always evaluates to false and
prints Closed.

I've also tried:
if ticket.send(column.name) == "true" but I get the same behavior.

When I try <%=h ticket.send(column.name) %> it get true

Any help would be most appreciated.

Nevermind my bad. Passing true to eql? in the proper way fixed my
problem.

However anyone know why == "true" wouldn't work when the same form
works for checking the column name against "Status"?

I haven't tested this, but I'm gonna guess that Ticket.status is a boolean
field, but you're comparing it to the *string* "true". What happens if
you do:

ticket.send(column.name).eql?(true)

?

true == "true"

=> false

true.class

=> TrueClass

"true".class

=> String

Thanks!

That would work too, and be a lot cleaner.

Thanks!
