MongoDBS inserting null values?

This was driving me nuts for the better part of the day.

Thinking I was screwing up somewhere, I kept reviewing and reviewing till I finally set

 "prod_cats": {

     "0": {

       "prod_categories": "4fac1990c1ccc21d29000000",

       "": null 


Here’s part of my form, the [0] is intended as a placeholder till I add a loop to it.

      <div class="row">


          <script type="text/javascript">

      $(document).ready(function() {

    $('#ProdCategories_0_prod_categories').val('<?php echo $model->prod_cats['0']['prod_categories']; ?>');






     $model->prod_cats[0] = new ProdCategories();


            <div class="two columns"><?php echo $form->labelEx($model->prod_cats[0],'prod_categories'); ?></div>

            <div class="eight columns"><?php echo $form->dropDownList($model->prod_cats[0],"[0]prod_categories", $catList); ?>

            <?php echo $form->error($model->prod_cats[0],'prod_categories'); ?></div>


Then my Controller

                    $model->prod_cats[0]= new ProdCategories;

$model->prod_cats[0]->prod_categories = $_POST['ProdCategories']['0']['prod_categories'];

I already have arrays of more complex embedded documents, this one is causing the most headaches :blink:


I have the same problem … Did you find the solution ?
