Empty lazily loaded Text fields considered dirty

Reported by Jarkko Laine | June 4th, 2008 @ 10:11 AM


  1. You have a model with Text fields that are lazily loaded.
  2. You have an object of the given model saved, with the text field empty.

What to do:

Try to go through a standard crud update action in merb, leaving the fields untouched, so that the text field is still empty.

What happens:

The text field is not loaded and the field is considered dirty. However, save will return false because in reality the object is unchanged. That will result in a catch-22 situation where the form is redisplayed without any error messages.

What should happen?

When the dirtiness of the text field is examined, the field value should be loaded and the field regarded as non-dirty.
