Validation documentation error

Reported by Daniel | July 7th, 2009 @ 05:46 PM

Hello Ben,

It seems that there is a discrepancy between the below two documentation pages in that one creates a "before_validation" callback, while the other creates a "validate" callback. In any case, I'm not having success with either version. When using "before_validation", "attempted_record" is nil. When using "validate", my method does not get called at all.


In the below example, nothing gets printed. Changing "validate" to "before_validation" prints the $s, but then throws a "nil object" error when reaching "if attempted_record.invited?" ("The error occurred while evaluating nil.invited?").

class UserSession < Authlogic::Session::Base
  logout_on_timeout true
  consecutive_failed_logins_limit 12
  validate :ensure_not_invited


def ensure_not_invited

puts &quot;$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$&quot;
if attempted_record.invited?
  puts &quot;********************************************&quot;

end end
