Laravel unit test with input with array name

Input I am trying to fill:

<input type="text" id="order-number" name="order_numbers[]" class="form-control">

My unit test code:
    public function testSearch()
        ->type('12001546', 'order_numbers[]');

Error I am getting:
1) OrdersTest::testSearch
InvalidArgumentException: Unreachable field ""

Method 1

I had the same problem, couldn’t find a better solution than

// TestCase.php
protected function storeArrayInput($values, $name)
     $this->inputs[$name] = $values;
     return $this;

// YourTest.php
public function testSearch()
        ->storeArrayInput(['12001546'], 'order_numbers');
