2 enter their delivery info see example at delivery.php

1) You could use a check box to select delivery, if unchecked it would be pickup. You can use the new form toolkit extension to add a date picker form field to your form for delivery date.


2) The eCart checkout form already includes a shipping section, couldn't you just use that as the delivery info?


3) how are you establishing location? based on City? Zip Code? you will need to determine this first.

1-EL: We took your advice and purchased the form toolkit extension (last night) and have added the calendar element to our form.

2-EL: The portion that we're trying to incorporate is a (client) add on feature and wasn't built when we ran the wizard, so we're really not sure of how to manipulate the established cart elements.

3-EL: The client wants to use the city, we've built a drop down menu with all of the cites and the delivery fees listed as the value i.e. Hopkins 25.00. We are not sure of how to add the dropdown menu value to the calculation and subtotal of the confirm page??? we've attached the built form and WA files to this post.

for every form element that you add to the checkout page, you will need to add 2 things to the confirm page:

1) the confimr page has a collection of hidden form elements to capture the values posted from the checkout page, you need to add a new hidden form element with the same name as the one from the checkout page:

php:
<input name="DeliveryName" type="hidden" id="DeliveryName" value="<?php echo((isset($_POST["DeliveryTime"]))?$_POST["DeliveryTime"]:""?>" />




2) Each form element has a corespondin set session value behavior on the confirm page.
on the sever behaviors panel, click the plus button and select eCart -> General -> Set Session Value.

Set the trigger to any form post.

set the name to the same as the form element.

click the lightning bolt next to value and select the corresponding form element from the form collection.


for the delivery charge:

dont pass the charge amount in the city drop down list, pass the city name instead.

you have 5 different charges, so create 5 different shipping charge rules

Set the triggers to be based on session variable value, and add a trigger for each possible city using the OR separator

15 dollar delivery:
Triggers:
Based On session variable Value - If the Session Variable 'DeliveryCity' has a value of 'Downtown Mpls'

OR
Based On session variable Value - If the Session Variable 'DeliveryCity' has a value of 'Downtown Saint Paul'

OR
Based On session variable Value - If the Session Variable 'DeliveryCity' has a value of 'Roseville'

OR
Based On session variable Value - If the Session Variable 'DeliveryCity' has a value of 'Falcon Heights'

Calculation:
Flat rate charge of 15
