This article is obsolete because it uses features that were replaced many times over. If you want an HABTM selector widget, look at MultipleSelect by Daniel Rodríguez Troitiño.

I just uploaded a new version of the HABTM Helper Plugin. No new features, except it now works…

There was a bug which would cause an error when the selected elements were not updated by the end-user. All the IDs were bunched together, instead of being separated by commas.

This is an artifact of the fact that the view helper was not built using behavioral driven development.

Anyway, it now all works, and is in production on two projects of mine.

Hope it helps someone !
