#317 ✓invalid

named_scope drops :limit option

Reported by Tekin | June 4th, 2008 @ 01:09 PM

Passing the :limit option to a named scope has no affect on the query generated.


class Product
  named_scope :most_ordered, :order => 'ordered_count DESC'

# We want the three most ordered products
Product.most_ordered(:limit => 3)

Generates the following sql:

SELECT * FROM `products` ORDER BY ordered_count DESC

    I've just noticed that you can use .first to get a subset of results, but this does not limit at the database level:


    will hit the dabase for all products before returning the first three.

    OK, my mistake, to get the desired effect, you have to do:

    Product.most_ordered.all(:limit => 3)

    invalid ticket...
