backbone example - serialize form + update on change
window.MyView = Backbone.View.extend({
initialize: ->
_.bindAll(this,'render')
this.template = window.JST["MyView"]
this.model.bind('change', this.render)
render: ->
$(this.el).html(this.template(this.model.toJSON()))
events: {
'change':'update'
}
update: ->
form = this.$("form").serializeObject()
this.model.set(form)
jQuery.fn.serializeObject = ->
arrayData = @serializeArray()
objectData = {}
$.each arrayData, ->
if @value?
value = @value
else
value = ''
if objectData[@name]?
unless objectData[@name].push
objectData[@name] = [objectData[@name]]
objectData[@name].push value
else
objectData[@name] = value
return objectData
