Ajax.InPlaceCollectionEditor check for collection items being Array splits 2 character strings

Reported by Slave2zeros | November 14th, 2008 @ 04:18 AM

When creating a new instance of Ajax.InPlaceCollectionEditor with 'collection' object containing strings, strings with a length of 2 are handled incorrectly. I've posted an example of what I'm describing below.

new Ajax.InPlaceCollectionEditor('myInPlaceEditor', '/submit/path', { collection: ['chicken', 'duck', 'me', 'truck'] });

When this creates the select box, it creates the following:

	<option value="chicken">chicken</option>
	<option value="duck">duck</option>
	<option value="m">e</option>
	<option value="truck">truck</option>

The code for this can be found in the buildOptionList method. And can be fixed as follows. Change:

this._collection = this._collection.map(function(entry) {
  return 2 === entry.length ? entry : [entry, entry].flatten();


this._collection = this._collection.map(function(entry) {
  return (2 === entry.length && typeof entry == 'array') ? entry : [entry, entry].flatten();

I will try to get the latest copy checked out and fix this myself, but may not get an opportunity to do so.
