Anyone know why my text_area field is being prefilled with "empty_clob()" instead of simply being empty like I would expect? I'm using Oracle 10g so I suspect it's coming from the oci8 driver somehow?
Here's the code:
<% form_for :user do |f| -%> <%= f.text_area :notes, :rows => 2, :cols => 32 %> <% end -%>
It should be just an empty text area ready for data to be input.
In my migration I'm making the field a text field:
t.column :notes, :text
I tried adding :default => '' but that didn't help.
The model for this is still empty at this point.
