ActiveRecord: boolean support with bit(1) MySQL data type
Reported by Antonio Espinosa | December 2nd, 2010 @ 03:32 PM
BIT MySQL data type was added in MySQL 5.0.3 for MyISAM, and extended in 5.0.5 to MEMORY, InnoDB, BDB, and NDBCLUSTER. Before 5.0.3, BIT is a synonym for TINYINT(1).
os: Windows XP
gem mysql: 2.8.1
mysql server: 5.0.41
Activerecord#column_name? return false instead of true when using datatype "bit(1)" with mysql and the value in the database is 1 (true).
To support the bit data type, I have changed the following files:
def value_to_boolean(value) if value.is_a?(String) && value.blank? nil else +++ value = value.ord if value.is_a?(String) && value.ord < 2 # Support bit(1) mysql datatype for bool TRUE_VALUES.include?(value) end end
def simplified_type(field_type) # return :boolean if MysqlAdapter.emulate_booleans && field_type.downcase.index("tinyint(1)") +++ return :boolean if MysqlAdapter.emulate_booleans && field_type =~ /tinyint\(1\)|bit/i return :string if field_type =~ /enum/i super end
def extract_limit(sql_type) case sql_type when /blob|text/i case sql_type when /tiny/i 255 ... when /^tinyint/i; 1 +++ when /^bit/i; 1 else super end end
