increment_counter(counter_name, id) public

Increment a numeric field by one, via a direct SQL update.

This method is used primarily for maintaining counter_cache columns used to store aggregate values. For example, a DiscussionBoard may cache posts_count and comments_count to avoid running an SQL query to calculate the number of posts and comments there are each time it is displayed.

Parameters

  • counter_name - The name of the field that should be incremented.

  • id - The id of the object that should be incremented or an Array of ids.

Examples

# Increment the post_count column for the record with an id of 5
DiscussionBoard.increment_counter(:post_count, 5)
