Adding Multiple Items to Cart

Adding Multiple Items to Cart

Hello there

I have a bit of a unique situation;

I am building a clothing site where the user selects type/style/colour then these parameters are passed through to the size selection page - all fine.
What I want to do is to return the contents of my sizes table (it is dynamically built through the backend) - S,M,L etc and put the results in a normal repeating region - again, all OK so far.
In the repeating region I then put a 'quantity' box against each size (default 0) for the user to complete and then add the lot (including the quantity) to the cart.
Also in the repeating region (inside the form) are hidden fields which hold the parameters already passed (same for all garments)
I followed the instructions for eCart v3 but this doesn't appear to work properly at all - it returns the last record quantity for all rows in the cart.
I don't need the checkbox filter, as I will only be passing the rows where the quantity is positive.
Is this possible?

Thanks

this would take a lot of hand coding to accomplish, you would need an expert level of PHP, MySQL coding experience to get this to work, we will not be able to offer support for this.

Thanks Anyhow - but . . .

OK - I am trying to accomplish this myself by following the principles in the Add Multiple Items to Cart Tutorial.
However - when I try to add the DataAssist Search I get a popup error as the attached image.

Do you have any idea what's causing this please?

Thanks

Steve

Got It

Sorted it - if it helps anyone else, having an input field named 'size' breaks the script.
Rookie error!

Add to Cart Button Not Working?

Hello

I have figured how to achieve this I think but for some reason the Add to Cart redirect just does not work.
I now have a method of obtaining a filtered recordset which is perfect and avoids the need for the checkbox in the example for adding multiple items - I simply want to add all the items in the pre-filtered recordset.

The Add to Cart Button returns the same page with just the button showing - no recordset - instead of redirecting the the cart page.

I have rebuilt this several times to no avail - same result.

I have attached the file - can you see where this is going adrift please?
I am up against it with this so any help would be appreciated!

Many thanks

add the following code just before the closing </form> tag:

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

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

Thanks for you help - also after a bit of digging I found this post that filled in the missing link and enabled me to achieve exactly what I was trying to do;

showthread.php?t=17282&highlight=multiple+items+quantities

I leave this here in case it can be of assistance to anyone else.
