contract MyContract {
    uint public len;
    mapping(uint=>byte) public names;
    function initContracts(byte[] contractNames_){
        for(uint i=0;i<contractNames_.length;i++){

When I use Mist, and pass [0x01,0x02,0x03], it seems that byte[] contractNames_ can not be assigned to storage mapping names, and variable len remains 0.

  • Have you tried ["0x01","0x02","0x03"] with the hex strings quoted in Mist? I tried your code as is and it worked with quoted hex strings in browser-solidity (output at pastebin.com/psYDzPn0). – eth Sep 4 '16 at 6:54
  • thank u very much! [0x01,0x02,0x03] is not valid. – Jim Green Sep 4 '16 at 7:17

The input [0x01,0x02,0x03] had to use quoted hex strings: ["0x01","0x02","0x03"]

The code works as is in browser-solidity and OP has confirmed it also works in Mist.
