Problem with model called Filter

Reported by Stephan Kaag | June 3rd, 2008 @ 04:48 PM

In Rails 2.1.0 i discovered a problem with a model called filter.rb which wasn't there at version 2.0.2.

In ./script/console i can instantiate a filter instance. When calling in a controller an ArgumentError is being thrown.

ArgumentError (wrong number of arguments (0 for 2)

A Filter.inspect says: "ActionController::Filters::Filter"

Googling for users with this same problem leads me to which seems to have the same cause.

    Hmm, I had the same issue.

    I changed all calls to Filter.find, etc with ::Filter.find, and it worked.

    Is there a better way?

    • State changed from “new” to “invalid”

    Sorry, but Filter is an object in ActionController. You'll have to specify :: when using it in your controllers.
