#641 closed bug (fixed)

jFormsControlDataSource should not define defaultValue=array() as it is not valid on a <menulist>

Reported by: bibo Owned by:

This is theorically invalid to assign an empty array to a menulistcontrol as it only selects one value.

Practically, a bug can appear as the developper is waiting for a single value and not an array. BUT it occured to me on what i think is rather a rare case. Below is a description:

  • a <menulist ref="select"> control is deactivated in my form because of a preceding choice
  • on submit, my code is factorized so it treats all choices (select deactivated or not) and don't use prepareDaoFromControls. Its loops over form data and assign them to corresponding property of a dao (with additional processing on some).
  • if <select> is deactivated, jelix will throw warning in for example mysql_real_escape_string on a dao insert/update.
