Max items in cart?

Max items in cart?

Hello,

(eCart 4, asp, Sql-server 2000)

For some reason the max amount of items (rows) in my cart is 24. I can put in 25 items (again, I mean 25 rows) into the cart but not more. Nothing happens as I click on "Add to cart" -button after that, the cart seems to be full.

Upon opening the cart itself the amount drops to 24.

Please help asap.

Is the cart object set to use Cookies?

a cookie has a maximum size of 4 KB, if you store the cart contents in a cookie it is possible to exceed the 4 KB maximum cookie size.

Instead, you should set the cart to use sessions.

The cart uses sessions, not cookies.

Wouldn't it be strange too if the cookie was "filled up" as the items have wery different length of names and text etc. and it is always 24 rows that is accepted but not 25?

Can you think of something else?

I'd be glad to send you the files if you open a support ticket for me.

Not here, it's a "hot" extranet for retailers and one needs privilegies to log on.

Please open a ticket so I can send the link with usernames/ passwords.

As you noticed, my cart uses cookies (sorry I remembered wrong) and the cookie seems to fill up at 23 rows of items in the cart. Now, is there a way of showing how many rows the cart consists of for the user?

I made a text explaining this cookie limit and would like to show how many rows the cart consist's of. -Or why not count down to 0 "..rows left before sending this order and start a new".

As I have eCart 5 installed and the site is classic ASP I have to code this by hand. Any advice would be welcome.

the code for showing unique items in the cart is:

UBound(eCart1.Items)





you could create a message showing how many more items they can add using something like:

<% If (UBound(eCart1.Items) > 0) Then %>Yow have <%= UBound(eCart1.Items) %> items in the cart. You can add <%= (23 - cInt(UBound(eCart1.Items)))%> more.<% End If %>
