FormHelpers generating form with method put for ActiveRecord object even after it got deleted

Reported by Vinay Patel | July 27th, 2010 @ 01:51 PM

  • i use form_for @order in my views and for orders/new it has method post. which is good.
  • when form is submitted, on the controller side the happens and in the after_save self.destroy is called for some reason.
  • i need the same @order as i need to lookup .errors on this object, so i keep using it.
  • i redirect to orders/new with the same @orders.
  • but i would expect that the form_for generates a form with method post and not with put as i had called a destroy on it.

    I don't really understand what you are doing, but if you object responds true to the persisted? method, it will use the :put method, and if your object responds (or doesn't respond at all) to persisted? with false, it will use the :post method

    Could you past your code? Is it really a rails bug? What version of ruby are you using? what version of rails?

    The resources of the Rails core team are limited, and so we are asking for your help. If you can still reproduce this error on the 3-0-stable branch or on master, please reply with all of the information you have about it and add "[state:open]" to your comment. This will reopen the ticket for review. Likewise, if you feel that this is a very important feature for Rails to include, please reply with your explanation so we can consider it.

    Thank you for all your contributions, and we hope you will understand this step to focus our efforts where they are most helpful.
