2.1.2 changes ActiveRecord validation sequence for associations

Reported by Ahmet Dogramaci | October 30th, 2008 @ 12:14 PM | in 2.x

Person has one ContactInfo.

class Person < ActiveRecord::Base has_one :contact_info, :as => :contactable, :dependent => :destroy end

On rails 2.1.0 ContactInfo validation is done before Person validation. So, I can catch the errors in the contact info in Person after_validation call back. This is necessary since I only display a single form to the user.

When I migrate the same code to 2.1.2, it looks like ContactInfo validation is done after Person validation. So, I can not catch the contact info error in Person after_validation call back.

To me, this looks like a problem that would affect many applications since you can not catch dependent association errors.

    • State changed from “new” to “invalid”

    That's expected behaviour. You could also play with :validate => true/false to match your needs.
