Summary0001499: property_set: unable to change array item value

I'm trying to change an array item value using the DBGP protocol.

Let's assume I want to set the 'foo bar' key of the $a array to the 'lorem2' string (bG9yZW0y in base64).

I tried all these commands:

property_set -t string -n $a["foo bar"] -d 0 -l 8 -- bG9yZW0y
property_set -t string -n $a['foo bar'] -d 0 -l 8 -- bG9yZW0y
property_set -t string -n $a[\"foo bar\"] -d 0 -l 8 -- bG9yZW0y
property_set -t string -n $a["foo bar"] -d 0 -l 8 -- bG9yZW0y

but xdebug always responds with an error (code: 1, message: parse error in command).

Am I missing something?

Additional Information

Tested this in xdebug 2.6.0alpha1 with the DLL from

I also tried with

property_set -t string -n "$a[\"foo bar\"]" -d 0 -l 8 -- bG9yZW0y

In this case, I get a successful response from xdebug (success="1"), but the actual value of the array doesn't change.

In all of your example, you miss the "-i <id>", unless you didn't show the full commands?

In any case, this is a duplicate of:

I also asked people on twitter about this:

Yes, sorry, I only wrote the partial commands. All the above commands have the "-i <id>" parameter.

Looking forward for the resolution of 0001488
