:select option doesn't work

Reported by kgiszczak | February 23rd, 2009 @ 08:30 AM

When declaring association with :select option, searchlogic ignore this option. For example:

  class User < ActiveRecord::Base
    has_many :posts, :select => 'whatever'


  def index
    @search = current_user.posts
    @posts = @search.all

Generated query is: SELECT * FROM posts

Searchlogic version: 1.6.4

    Searchlogic just uses the scope passed to it. I believe ActiveRecord is the one ignoring the select, because I don't hand pick options from associations. If you dig into how AR handles associations you will see it essentially sets up a scope. I don't think there is anything I can do about this, sorry.

    To prove my point, check out the "construct_scope" method in the HasManyAssociation class:

    def construct_scope
              create_scoping = {}
                :find => { :conditions => @finder_sql, :readonly => false, :order => @reflection.options[:order], :limit => @reflection.options[:limit], :include => @reflection.options[:include]},
                :create => create_scoping
