MVC 3 json post array workaround

Ajax-posting a JSON object containing arrays using jQuery work fine in PHP, but since ASP.NET expects the array to be posted with indeces a tiny workaround is required. Concider the following example. var jsonData = {'foo': 0, bar: [1,2]}; $.post('/post-url',postData, function(){ }); This will cause the post data to look like foo=0 bar[]=1 bar[]=2 PHP acceps this, but ASP.NET requires the post data to be foo=0 bar[0]=1 bar[1]=2 Here’s a workaround.
