ActionText and Globalize error

Alexey Poimtsev asked in Rails

Hi!
I have application which is using globalize gem and i planning to start using ActionText. So, for example i have model called Business

class Business < ApplicationRecord
  translates :name, :description
  globalize_accessors

  has_rich_text :description
end 

and i created an record in database. But on attempt to edit i see following error

undefined method `body' for "<div><strong>jfgjwhgewr</strong></div>":String

for my form

  .form-inputs
    - I18n.available_locales.each do |locale|
      = f.input :"name_#{locale.to_s}", label: "Name (#{locale.to_s})"
    - I18n.available_locales.each do |locale|
      = f.label "Description (#{locale.to_s})"
      = f.rich_text_area :"description_#{locale.to_s}"

Whats wrong with it and how can i solve this issue?

PS: I found https://github.com/rails/actiontext/issues/32#issuecomment-450653800 but this solution looks little bit strange :(

Hi Alexey,
Did you find any solution for this? I am getting the same error.
I added description to the tranlsation table as text.

Thanks

suppose you use globalize gem and did the migration according to globalize docs ->

class CreateTranslation < ActiveRecord::Migration[6.0]
  def up
    Business.create_translation_table!({name: :string,  description: text}, { migrate_data: true })
  end

  def down
    Business.drop_translation_table! migrate_data: true
  end
end

remove from model:

globalize_accessors
has_rich_text :description

and try to use the following in the view:

<%= rich_text_area_tag "business[name]",  f.object.name %>
<%= rich_text_area_tag "business[description]",  f.object.description %>

Encountering this same issue with action text

I am seeing this error, too. I am trying to use a form object. This only occurs when the form object fails to save and the form must be redrawn. I am guessing it has to do with new_record?
