Error: Firebase.update failed: First argument contains NaN in property


I am making a web app that allows the user to grow a tree. When the user fertilizes the tree, the attribute "fertilizer" should increment. However, the app keeps giving me the error because it has decided that "fertilizer" is undefined.

The update score function looks like:

function updateScore(){ if (usr!=null){ var tree = $firebase(new Firebase("https://myapp.firebaseio.com/trees/"+usr.treeid)); var usrTree = tree.$asObject(); var data = null; if (typeof usrTree.data !== 'undefined'){ data = usrTree.data; } console.log(usrTree); console.log(usrTree.$id); console.log(usrTree.uid); console.log(usrTree.fertilizer); tree.$update({fertilizer: usrTree.fertilizer+1}); } } }

So the console gives these results:

e {$$conf: Object, $id: "-JcDm0UlYVGFfFAX0GSf", $priority: null, $save: function, $remove: function…} $$conf: Object $id: "-JcDm0UlYVGFfFAX0GSf" $priority: null fertilizer: 0 level: 0 pesticide: 0 sunshine: 0 uid: "simplelogin:6" water: 0 __proto__: Object -JcDm0UlYVGFfFAX0GSf undefined undefined

I believe the first one is the usrTree object, the second one is the $id and the third and the fourth should be uid and fertilizer but are caught undefined. However, in the usrTree object, uidand fertilizer do show up as defined and they exist in firebase forge:

What am I doing wrong here?? What should I do to update the data??


It turns out that I need to use $loaded. I changed the code to the following and it works now.

var tree = $firebase(FirebaseRef.child("trees").child(usr.treeid)); var usrTree = tree.$asObject(); usrTree.$loaded().then(function() { tree.$update({fertilizer: usrTree.fertilizer + 1}); }
