Can this type of "add to cart" be done with E-cart - see example

Hello,
i need to develop a shopping system that would function like this example:
0?N=377%20710%201626&Ne=0&Ntt=Switches&Ntx=mode%20matchallpartial&page=CategoryDisplayLevel1&isLTokenURL=true&storeNum=5002&subdeptNum=9&classNum=294

where 1 product may have multiple associated products like a cleaning product, comes in 32oz, 1 gallon, 5 gallons, 10 gallons all different prices but the same product. you'll see if you view the link above how this website has the same idea set-up where it lists the associated products with a quantity box next to each and 1 add to cart button at the bottom.

does anyone have any idea how this could be accomplished, as well as how would one go about the set-up of the DB / inserting new product in an admin... would it be insert the main product and then the associated ones in as separate line items in another table related to this main product?... this is a little different then anything ive done before so i'm trying now to visualize how this whole would be set-up.

thanks

It can be done with a combination of eCart, DataAssist, good database design, and a little knowledge of common php and database concepts like SQL, get, post, and sesison variables.

In terms of this database... They are probably all separate products, they are just grouped and displayed together on a single page. They share a description and picture, but it looks like most product details are unique. Most likely it is done with a joined grouping table and/or field in the products database. Descriptions may be included in the joined grouping table if a particular set of products share something like a description on the group level.

Admin would probably have to be done in a multiple step operation and would be assisted by DataAssist server behaviors and wizards.

Thanks Ray,
what about the quantity boxes with 1 "add to cart" button how would that be set-up?, is there any documentation for something like this in e-cart?

I don't know of any tutorials on this specific topic.

You could probably name your quantity field including the productID from the database like:

name="Quantity_Of_<?php echo($row['id']); ?>"

Then when submit it pressed, insert from the unfiltered recordset getting the quantity from the associated form field referenced by productID. Make sure blank ones are set to 0 and they should be skipped in the cart as well.
