Problem with value_before_type_cast

Reported by Chris Wise | August 26th, 2010 @ 12:19 PM

There was a recent change: in RC2.

to value_before_type_cast to not look first for a the method _before_type_cast and instead seeing if the object responds_to the base method_name.

This breaks things like time fields getting formatted value for the text_field helper etc.

I have a sample demo at git:// I apologize that I don't have this as a small Gist to demonstrate it with, but I am not sure how to isolate it down to that.

    Close this ticket please. It would appear that I was using mysql (2.8.1) gem instead of mysql2. Apparently there is some behaviour with the way time fields are rendered because the before_type_cast returns a formatted time. I shouldn't have been expecting that text_field would render a time as a time.
