ZF-6601: Unable to send ArrayCollection as input argument from flex

Description

Trying to send an ArrayCollection from flex to ZendAMF leads to following error:


Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'Zend_Amf_Exception' with message 'Unable to parse null body data flex.messaging.io.ArrayCollection mapped class is not defined' in C:\wamp\www\ZendFramework\library\Zend\Amf\Request.php:174 Stack trace:

Sample code to do this can be:

protected function fxapplication1_creationCompleteHandler(event:FlexEvent):void { var a:ArrayCollection = new ArrayCollection();

a.addItem('hello');

a.addItem('world');


srv.createItem(a);

}

ArrayCollections should be supported as it is widely used in flex.

Fixed - ArrayCollection now is converted to array.

Stanislav,

I tried with the code supplied by Gaurav Priyadarshi and had no success retrieving the ArrayCollection on my php class.

Would you mind putting an example on how to send the ArrayCollection to PHP and use it there now that the issue is fixed?

Thanks in advance.

I figured it out myself.

On your flex code convert your ArrayCollections to Array and you are ready to go.

protected function fxapplication1_creationCompleteHandler(event:FlexEvent):void {

var a:ArrayCollection = new ArrayCollection(); a.addItem('hello'); a.addItem('world');

var b:Array = a.toArray(); srv.createItem(b);

}
