Stuck on an issue?

Lightrun Answers was designed to reduce the constant googling that comes with debugging 3rd party libraries. It collects links to all the places you might be looking at while hunting down a tough bug.

And, if you’re still stuck at the end, we’re happy to hop on a call to see how we can help out.

When using ng-options on a single select after selecting an option attempting to select the last option will throw this error: "Uncaught TypeError: Cannot set property 'selected' of undefined"

See original GitHub issue

It’s an off by 1 error. ng-options is generating the list with n+1 options(the +1 being an empty option). The solution is to watch the select.length and on change throw an updated call.

Here is the fix, jam it in the linker function:

    return element[0].length; 
}, function(newvalue, oldvalue){
    if (newvalue !== oldvalue) {
