wrong weight being calculated

Hi after conducting a few tests to make sure the correct shipping cost is added to the order. I foudn that the product weight is calculated wrong. I have attached the checkout.php file. the first occurrence of the weight reference is on line 217.

The idea is to add sun the weight for products, product options and then the quantity.

I was wonder what would be the best way to provide more information on this and/or testing methods (currently I am using <?php echo $DinkyCart->DisplayInfo("TotalWeight"); ?> to display the total weight for reference in my testing.

Are you able to tell from the attached php file if the the page is doing the calculation for ((products+product options) x quantity)

in my ecart object is does state weight quantity (but i wonder if it takes into accoutn for product options? attaching screenshot

The odd thing is even if it doesn't take into account product options weight the maths still doesn't add up correctly.

I give you an example:

I did a test order and manually I added up all the weight that stored in the database the total is : 348g
using <?php echo $DinkyCart->DisplayInfo("TotalWeight"); ?>to display the weight in the cart it calculates as 160g

Here are all the products in my cart (fr quantity I just repeated the products:

(main product) ball bracelet is 40g
(product option) Charm Type Small Diamond is 40g
(product option) Charm Type Small Diamond is 40g
(product option) Charm Type Small Heart is 40g

(main product) Ascending Double Print Large Keyring is 40g
(product option) Ascending Small Charm Heart is 0g
(product option) Ascending Large Charm Diamond is 0g

(main product) Ascending Double Print Large Keyring is 40g
(product option) Ascending Small Charm Heart is 0g
(product option) Ascending Large Charm Diamond is 0g

Silver Cleaning Cloth is 1g
Silver Cleaning Cloth is 1g
Silver Cleaning Cloth is 1g
Pandora Charm Carrier is 40g
Sterling Silver Initial is 40g
Dinky Fingerprint Impression Kit is 5g
Dinky Fingerprint Impression Kit is 5g
Dinky Fingerprint Impression Kit is 5g
Dinky Hand/Footprint/Paw Print Kit is 5g
Dinky Hand/Footprint/Paw Print Kit is 5g


I just dont understand where its getting 160g from?! I mean if you look I have 3 products with a weight of 1g each so the calculation should at least end with either a 3 or a 8 (if you take into account the 5g items)
