Instance Method Details

#change(column_name, type, options = {}) ⇒ Object

Changes the column's definition according to the new options. See TableDefinition#column for details of the options you can use.

Examples
t.change(:name, :string, :limit => 80)
t.change(:description, :text)

def change(column_name, type, options = {})
  @base.change_column(@table_name, column_name, type, options)
end

#change_default(column_name, default) ⇒ Object

Sets a new default value for a column. See SchemaStatements#change_column_default

Examples
t.change_default(:qualification, 'new')
t.change_default(:authorized, 1)

def change_default(column_name, default)
  @base.change_column_default(@table_name, column_name, default)
end

#column(column_name, type, options = {}) ⇒ Object

Adds a new column to the named table. See TableDefinition#column for details of the options you can use.

Example
Creating a simple column
t.column(:name, :string)

328
# File 'activerecord/lib/active_record/connection_adapters/abstract/schema_definitions.rb', line 326

def column(column_name, type, options = {})
  @base.add_column(@table_name, column_name, type, options)
end

#column_exists?(column_name, type = nil, options = {}) ⇒ Boolean

Checks to see if a column exists. See SchemaStatements#column_exists?

333
# File 'activerecord/lib/active_record/connection_adapters/abstract/schema_definitions.rb', line 331

def column_exists?(column_name, type = nil, options = {})
  @base.column_exists?(@table_name, column_name, type, options)
end

#index(column_name, options = {}) ⇒ Object

Adds a new index to the table. column_name can be a single Symbol, or an Array of Symbols. See SchemaStatements#add_index

Examples
Creating a simple index
t.index(:name)
Creating a unique index
t.index([:branch_id, :party_id], :unique => true)
Creating a named index
t.index([:branch_id, :party_id], :unique => true, :name => 'by_branch_party')
