Select a specified quantity from many products

Select a specified quantity from many products

Not sure if the Topic title accurately reflects what I need to accomplish, but I will do my best to explain it here and hopefully someone can steer me in the right direction.

I am selling boxed truffles in the amount of 16 per box at a set price. I want the user to be able to choose any combination of the 16 pieces from a selection of 20+ truffles. (Example: Qty 2 of Truffle A, Qty 6 of Truffle B, Qty 1 of Truffle J etc... until 16 truffles have been selected).

A "must" have would be the need for some kind of validation to ensure that they choose the right number (16) of truffles. A "would like" to have would be the ability to show in the cart/checkout the truffle selection breakdown by item name/quantity. I currently have all of the products in a database and have created a recordset (with repeating region) on the page. I would like to know if something like this is possible using the current functionality of data assist and eCart

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

the simplist way to accomplish this would be to create 16 new columns in the eCart object one for each truffle.

then in the add to cart button, set each of the 16 columns to be updateable from a select list.

populate each of the 16 columns with all 20 of the available truffles.

this will ensure that only 16 truffles can be selected, but will have the draw back of the customer having to select truffle A 4 times if that is how many they want.

it _Could_ be done where you had a quantity box next to each select list, but in this case, you would need to hand code the logic to ensure that the total quantity of items selected was 16.
