text_field() does not use overridden model accessors

Reported by Dennis Theisen | October 14th, 2009 @ 02:23 AM | in 3.0.2

The following is an old problem, which still hasn't been fixed.

I couldn't find the same issue on Lighthouse, so I submitted the ticket again. If you this is a duplicate please feel free to delete it, but I can confirm the problem still exists in 2.3.4 and it feels like it should be fixed! (there is even a patch already)

This was the original ticket on Trac:

When utilizing text_field, the value of the text field when the form is populated from the database is not being pulled from the overridden Model accessor, but is instead being directly pulled from the Model. Example:

In the View: <%= text_field( 'db', 'name' ) %>

In the Model:

def name
  # Return the name of the db, less the prepend of 'sitename_' name = read_attribute(:name) site = return name = name.gsub( + "_",)

This overridden method works great when calling

Expected result: text_field uses overridden method like everyone else. Actual result: text_field just grabs the direct data.
