I'm setting a checkbox values based on the return of a model field method. The way the method is set up - it only gets called when a checkbox value is set.

Here's the model code:

  def within=(new_within)
     @within = new_within == "1" || new_within == true || new_within == 'true' || new_within == 'on'
I would like that method to be called even when the checkbox is not set.

Thanks for any help anyone can provide.
