Different amount of options

Hi,

Im looking to build a site to sell varying products, mainly things such as shirts and tops.

My issue is some of my products will have 2 options (size/colour) and some might have more or less. is there a way to make the dynamic product page show product options depending on how many different options they have?

On the eCart support page, there is a tutorial for using product options, this uses a recordset to populate the options list.

you could select the option list, then add a show if region. go to the Insert Panel, click the plus button and select Show If, for the trigger select Recordset 'option recordset' not empty, where option recordset is name of the recordset used to populate the list.

The Show If option is a behavior on the Server behaivors panel

In design view, select the your option select list.

Go to Window -> Server Behaviors

In the server behaviors window click the plus button and select Show If.

Select Recordset <Option recordset> Not Empty

Where <Option recordset> is the recordset that is used to populate the option list.
