Hi all,

it would be great to be able to use the "property"-argument to specify values for nested objects. Here is an example:

Given a class “Club” and a class “User”. The Club has a property “user” that references a User-Object.

Club->user = User-Object

With Fluid I want to provide a formular for editing the Club-Object AND User-Object (inside the Club-Object) simultaneously. What I am trying to do is something like:

    arguments="{club : club}">

<p>Clubname: <f:form.textbox property="name" /></p>
<p>Responsible for Club: <f:form.textbox property="user.name" /></p>



When the formular is submitted the club's name and the name for the responsible should be changed.

Using r1642 and my snippet posted above <f:form.textbox property="user.name" /> is resolved correctly. However when submitting the formular an exception is thrown: #1251730702: The value must be of type "Tx_MyExtension_Domain_Model_Club", but was of type "array".

For helping to reconstruct the error the sample post-data sent to my action handler is:

I noticed that the error only appears when I send the "section" property. The snipped from my view looks like this:

<f:form.checkbox property="section" value="Breitensport" /> Breitensport<br />
<f:form.checkbox property="section" value="Wettkampfsport" /> Wettkampfsport<br />
<f:form.checkbox property="section" value="Leistungssport" /> Leistungssport<br />

The property "section" is of type "array". When I remove those 3 lines from my view everything works as expected.

Sorry for so long not responding, I think the problem is due to the checkbox ViewHelper which still causes some trouble.
