Hey @chasenlehara yeah that works! I didn't realize you could pass this an object to assign to the viewmodel.
cc @cherifGsoul basically I wanted to do this: <component this:from="propsObject" /> and have the component viewmodel get updated like viewModel.assign(propsObject);

@justinbmeyer yeah, it'll definitely be a behavior. I'll send it to you as a gist or something once it's ready. Thanks for the advice.
Side question: is the isSaving() function just for display in the UI, or is it important to the pipeline?

I'm getting &#65279; in my html
Does anyone know if this ia some known issue with canjs?
It is quite possibly something else like webstorm or some such... or something in my stache but thought I'd ask if anyone has experience this by any chance

@chasenlehara The only issue is can-stache-bindings.js:52 Uncaught Error: can-stache-bindings - you can not have contextual bindings ( this:from='value' ) and key bindings ( prop:from='value' ) on one element.

@RyanMilligan I've only ever used it for display purposes
to prevent buttons and such from being clicked on while the save is happening

@roemhildtg Correct, anything you want passed to the component should be done through this:from (otherwise there’d be a bunch of weird cases… what would happen if they conflicted?)
@eben-roux Not a known issue with CanJS. It’s most likely in your template… maybe copy + pasted from somewhere? Some other weird encoding issue?

@chasenlehara yes, there could be conflicts passing data in to the component
