Correct 'this' reference in statics of model. #1194

wants to merge 1 commit into from

2 participants


I have followed example of statics from docs:

animalSchema.statics.findByName = function (name, cb) {
  this.find({ name: new RegExp(name, 'i') }, cb);

But it seems that 'this' is global context. I think it would be possible to use Function.bind to fix it - see my commit.

Sorry that I don't know where I should write test for it, they are too chaotic for me :-)


this is already the Model in a static. I'm not sure what this is fixing, especially without tests.


Ok, sorry, I'll check it again. Maybe it's problem only in my application tests.


I found it and it was my fault. It was caused by usage of express-resource module and following initialization:

app.resource('pages', PageController, {base: '/api/', load: Page.findOneByUrl});

The 'load' is called as a function, without context, so there was global one. I fixed it in my code.

Once again sorry for this.
