Rails try method

Posted by wxianfeng Thu, 13 Jan 2011 19:20:00 GMT

环境:ruby 1.9.2 + rails 3.0.3


user = User.find_by_login("wxianfeng")  # =>  nil 
user.name # => NoMethodError: undefined method `name' for nil:NilClass

假如 login 为 wxianfeng 不存在 ,会报错:

NoMethodError: undefined method `name' for nil:NilClass

那么建议使用 try 方法避免报错,try 返回的是 nil

user.try(:name) # =>nil 


nil.try(:name) # => nil

看下源码: here

其实就是调用了 __send__ 方法 , __send__ 方法 和 send 方法等价 , 只不过 __send__ 方法 为了防止 有已经存在的 send 方法 , nil 的话 调用 NilClass 的 try 方法

另外 发现 github上 try方法已经重新写了 ,如下: here

class Object
  # Invokes the method identified by the symbol +method+, passing it any arguments
  # and/or the block specified, just like the regular Ruby <tt>Object#send</tt> does.
  # *Unlike* that method however, a +NoMethodError+ exception will *not* be raised
  # and +nil+ will be returned instead, if the receiving object is a +nil+ object or NilClass.
  # If try is called without a method to call, it will yield any given block with the object.
  # ==== Examples
  # Without try
  # @person && @person.name
  # or
  # @person ? @person.name : nil
  # With try
  # @person.try(:name)
  # +try+ also accepts arguments and/or a block, for the method it is trying
  # Person.try(:find, 1)
  # @people.try(:collect) {|p| p.name}
  # Without a method argument try will yield to the block unless the reciever is nil.
  # @person.try { |p| "#{p.first_name} #{p.last_name}" }
  # +try+ behaves like +Object#send+, unless called on +NilClass+.
  def try(*a, &b)
    if a.empty? && block_given?
      yield self
      __send__(*a, &b)

class NilClass #:nodoc:
  def try(*args)

其实只是判断了 if a.empty? && block_given? 这种情况 则直接执行block 内容然后返回,效果一样…..


require "active_support/core_ext/object/try"

class Klass

  def send(*args)
    "helo " + args.join(' ')

  def hello(*args)
    "Hello " + args.join(' ')

  def self.foobar(s)
     "#{s} foobar"

k = Klass.new

# __send__ 为了防止有方法名叫send , 建议用 __send__
p k.__send__ :hello, "gentle", "readers"   #=> "Hello gentle readers" 
p k.send "gentle", "readers"   #=> "Helo gentle readers"

# Ruby 里一切皆是对象,类也是对象
# Klass(类) 是 Class 的实例 , Class 是 Object 的实例 , 那么 Klass 也就是 Object 的实例 所以 Klass 可以调用try 方法
p Klass.try(:foobar,"hey") # => "hey foobar"
# k 是Klass 的实例,Klass 的父类是 Object , 所以 k 可以调用 try 方法
p k.try(:send,"bla","bla") # => "helo bla bla"

# class 得到的是 实例关系
# superclass 得到的是 继承关系
p Klass.superclass # Object
p Klass.class # Class
p k.class # Klass

另外 这是 对象nil 那如果 没有那个字段了 , 就会 报 找不到方法的错误


ruby-1.9.2-p0 > u=User.first
  User Load (175.8ms)  SELECT `users`.* FROM `users` LIMIT 1
 => #<User id: 1, login: "entos", name: "", email: "entos@entos.com", crypted_password: "557c88b0713f63397249f4198368e4a57d6d400f", salt: "4e04ef1cf506595ac3edf6a249791c55995b0f8f", remember_token: nil, remember_token_expires_at: nil, activation_code: nil, activated_at: nil, status: 2, suspend_at: nil, avatar_id: nil, orgunit_id: nil, mobile_phone: nil, last_login_at: nil, language: nil, options: nil, created_at: "2011-02-24 02:55:42", updated_at: "2011-02-24 02:55:42"> 
ruby-1.9.2-p0 > u.hi
NoMethodError: undefined method `hi' for #<User:0x9fcfe00>

建议加上 respond_to? 判断

ruby-1.9.2-p0 > u.respond_to? "hi"
 => false
