HI,
     I'm trying to populate a Select aka dropdown in a form.  I have an error that tells me I'm not sending the select an array.  What am I doing wrong.

Catchable fatal error: Argument 1 passed to Zend_Form_Element_Multi::setMultiOptions() must be an array, object
$sites = new Sites();

        $sitelist = $sites->getsitelist();

               

        $site = new Zend_Form_Element_Select('site');

        $site->setLabel('Site')

        ->setRequired(true)

        ->addValidator('NotEmpty', true)

        ->setMultiOptions($sitelist);
 
 
 
 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
 
 

class Sites extends Zend_Db_Table_Abstract {

	/**

	 * The default table name 

	 */

	protected $_name = 't_sites';

	

	public function getsitelist()

	{

		

		$sites =new Sites();

		

		return $sites->fetchAll(array('id = id', 'name = name'));

		

	}
 

}

Couple of things I see.

1.  line 28 is a bit confusing... 'id = id' and 'name = name' are reflexive, so this should always match.
2.  fetchAll returns Zend_Db_Rowset_Abstract, not an array.  You can use the toArray() function to break out of the Rowset object... change line 8 to:

->setMultiOptions($sitelist->toArray());

If you are confused there is no hope for me, jk.  

      return $sites->fetchAll()->toArray();     Worked.

But it filled the dropdown with every columns data as a choice , not a rowset.

The blunder at line 28 was an attempt to get one row to show up per selection in the dropdown.
