eCart Set Session Value dialogue box

eCart Set Session Value dialogue box

Hi over the weekend i purchased your dynamic suite and i was playing around with the ecart product and encounters something i was unclear about. I followed the getting started tutorial to the letter using the MySQL database design for the product database. Everything went well and i am enjoying the product.

My question arrises during the add checkout wizard. So i've create a cart object just fine...added an add to cart button fine, added the cart just fine and made it through all the steps in the checkout wizard just fine (easy to use...my props to the designer). So when i click the finish button and its making the checkout pages like "confirm.php" it opens a dialogue box that says "Set Session Value". It fills in the first two values (Trigger: If Session Variable is not defined; and Session Name:PayPal_ECO_Token) but leave the last field blank (value: field is blank). I attached a screen shot (screen1.jpg). If i click ok it inserts some code and the dialogue box re-appears (screen2.jpg). I click "ok" a bunch (like 30+) more times and eventually the dialogue box goes away and the wizard finishes building the checkout functionality.

My question is what am i supposed to be entering in these popup dialogues titled "Set Session Value"...the documentation i found didn't seem to address these issues specifically. If you could just point me in the correct direction i would appreciate it. Thank you!

This is very strange behavior, when you finish with the wizard it should generate all of the pages for you without any further interaction. Did you have a previous version of eCart installed before? What is your OS and DW version? Are the pages that you are selecting in the checkout wizard already existing? Please post back with this detail so we can look into this issue further.

Thanks for the reply...here are the details.

I'm on windows xp professional (service pack 3)...Dreamweaver CS3. I do not own any previous versions of eCart. I just bought the Dynamic suite this weekend, so there are several new plugins that i installed together this weekend (all the plugins associated with the dynamic suite). The only other plugin i have ever owned of yours is the HTML editor (purchase a week or two ago)...i was impressed with the ease of use of your work and so i bought the dynamic suite.

This happened on the first time i used the plugin...in fact i decided to start my exploration of the new tools by doing the eCart getting started tutorial first. I set up a blank site and got my database all ready (using your MySQL database download to set up the tables and such) and a folder available on my hosting provider to test everything out...then i started the tutorial. I made it through the first three wizards (making an ecart object, add to cart button, cart wizard) and made it through the checkout wizard just fine and clicked finish and then the program start doing some automated tasks and then came the pop-up window.

The pop-up window as i have stated showed on my first try and subsequently shows everytime i try and "re-run" the wizard (so files are present when re-running the wizard). I tried deleting everything in my test site and proceeding through the tutorial again with the same results. I have not tried setting up a new site and trying that from start to finish.

It is helpful knowing that the dialogue box is not supposed to show up...i was a bit unclear weather i was missing a step or had a strange behavior. I might try setting up a new site from scratch again and maybe even un-installing and then re-installing the pluggin. Give me any advice about other steps to do!

I appreciate the help. Thanks.

Well i tried the getting started tutorial again and came up with the same Set Session Value dialogue box after clicking finish on the checkout wizard. Here is what i did. I created a new MySql database, new folder on my hosting server and new dynamic site in dreamweaver CS3 (with a local edit (to a new blank folder) and remote test). So everything was blank and clean. I ran through all four wizards (created an ecart object, add to cart button wizard, add cart wizard, and checkout wizard) and clicked finish and then got the attached screenshot.

As you can see in the screen shot (attached), the file panel (open bottom right) has created the checkout.php file and started the confirm.php file and then the dialogue box appears. The top right panel (the eCart panel) says "Available Carts: Please wait while checkout wizard selections are processed." The dialogue box that appears is the same one as before ("Set Session Value"), i'm wondering if this has much of anything to do with the cookie plugin tool that came with the Dynamic Suite? All the other files that i know the checkout wizard is supposed to create have not been created...it's like this dialogue box has stopped the entire wizard from moving forward.

I can't think of anything else to say...let me know what i should try next. Thanks for the help. Best Regards. -Jonathan
