I found an answer(a tweak) to the question which was pinging my mind while working on my current project that How to validate one or more specific attribute of the model(field of the table i mean)?, as the requirement was to save a record after validating the model’s object through 4 steps ie. 4 different forms. Although i found something in the Rails API to put some step constraints on the validations in the model, but i didn’t find it that much flexible so i wrote a snippet which validates one or more specific attributes and can also save the record on the basis of validating specific attributes. Then i thought to pluginize it, as it might be useful
Check out the plugin Validate Attributes
It provides a simple way to validate specific attribute(s) unlike the function valid? which collectively validates all the attributes.
