Can a style influence what is passed onto the cart page?

Can a style influence what is passed onto the cart page?

I am still working on hiding non-relevant select menus. For example, if items have no size option, the size selection menu should be hidden. The size value for these item is set to zero.

In order for the items still to be passed on to the cart page I used this code (suggested by Jason), with the respective recordsets put in place:

$ATC_itemSize = "".$row_rspricelookup['size'] .""?$row_rspricelookup['size']:($row_rspriceNoSize['size']!=""?$row_rspriceNoSize['size']:($row_rspriceNoVersion['size']!=""?$row_rspriceNoVersion['size']:$row_rspriceNoVersionNoSize['size']));// column binding

In order to hide the non-relevant menu, I am using a temporary style

<?php
if ( (!isset($row_rsversion['version_id'])) || ($row_rsversion['version_id'] == "13") )
{
$tmpElementClassVersion = "hide";
}
else
{
$tmpElementClassVersion = "show";
}
?>
<?php
if ( (!isset($row_rssizedefault['size_id'])) || ($row_rssizedefault['size_id'] == "8") )
{
$tmpElementClassSize = "hide";
}
else
{
$tmpElementClassSize = "show";
}
?>

8 and 13 represent the zero values.

With the style defined like this (I also tried display:none, display:block):
.hide {
visibility: hidden;}
.show {
visibility: visible}

And for the output:
<select class="<?php echo $tmpElementClassVersion; ?>
for the version select menu

and
<select class="<?php echo $tmpElementClassSize; ?>
for the size select menu.

The problem: with the style in place, the product is not correctly passed onto the cart (for example a product in sizes S, M and L, no matter what size I choose, size S is being passed on).

Is something wrong with the if-statement?

I tried to replace the first line of the if statement with:

if ( $row_rsversion['version_id'] == "13" )

Still the product is not passed on to the cart page correctly.

dont use a style to hide the list.


use an if statement around the list itself.

Hi Jason,

I tried hiding the select menu with with

php:
<?php if (!empty($row_rssizedefault['size'])) { // Show if recordset not empty ?>



and also with

php:
<?php if ($row_rsversion['version_id'] != "13") { // Show if recordset not empty ?>



Where id 13 is a zero value.

Both ways take the menu away and put the correct item in the cart. But they also take away a feature that price and item no. automatically adjust, when the user makes a version or size choice.

It seems like the select menu is made invisible not only to the browser, but also to some JavaScript, that seems to rely on a value (even a zero value) from the hidden select menu.

When using the style to hide the select menu, the adjusting feature still works, but the wrong item would be put into the cart, if a choice was made.

Sorry for being so confusing.

Just in case, I have attached a copy of the detail page.

Hi Jason,

I think I may have found the solution by combining the use of php and css. I duplicated the select menu, then hide the first select menu, if there is no version option, both with php and css. The other select menu only shows, if there is a version option (with php).

It is probably very unconventional, and took me a while to figure out. Serious programmers will probably cry out in horror, but here is the code I used. It works for me, but if there is something, that should not be done, could you please let me know?

php:
<p>

                  <?php if ($row_rsversion['version_id'] == "13") { // Show if recordset empty ?>
                    <select class="<?php echo $tmpElementClassVersion?> name="SelectVersion" id="SelectVersion" onchange="WA_FilterAndPopulateSubList(rssize_WAJA,MM_findObj('SelectVersion'),MM_findObj('SelectSize'),0,0,false,': ');showprice()">
                      <?php
do {  
?>
                      <option value="<?php echo $row_rsversion['version_id']?>"<?php if (!(strcmp($row_rsversion['version_id'], $row_rsversion['version']))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>><?php echo $row_rsversion['version_compound']?></option>
                      <?php
} while ($row_rsversion mysql_fetch_assoc($rsversion));
  
$rows mysql_num_rows($rsversion);
  if(
$rows 0) {
      
mysql_data_seek($rsversion0);
      
$row_rsversion mysql_fetch_assoc($rsversion);
  }
?>
                    </select>
                    <?php // Show if recordset empty ?>
                    <?php if ($row_rsversion['version_id'] != "13") { // Show if recordset not empty ?>
                    <select name="SelectVersion" id="SelectVersion" onchange="WA_FilterAndPopulateSubList(rssize_WAJA,MM_findObj('SelectVersion'),MM_findObj('SelectSize'),0,0,false,': ');showprice()">
                      <?php

?>

                      <?php
