Access eCart Variable for Universal E-Mail

Access eCart Variable for Universal E-Mail

I want to insert the Total Price from an e-Cart into the template for a Universal E-Mail response. I'm using success.php to trigger the e-mail -- I don't want the e-mail to go unless the transaction is approved. The Blank.php template file does not have access to the eCart object, and the Session variables from the eCartCheckoutForm do not include the $TotalPrice from the eCart object.

How can I access the $TotalPrice from Blank.php??

you would need to add code to attach the eCart object, to the email template page and show the total, for example:

php:
<?php

//WA eCart Include
require_once("../../../WA_eCart/yourCartName_PHP.php");
?>
<?php
$yourCartName
->GetContent();
?>
<?php 
echo WA_eCart_DisplayMoney($yourCartName$total); ?>




where "yourCartName" is the name of your eCart object.

Jason -- when I try to use this the bookfair server behavior for Blank.php has a red exclamation mark next to it; all other instances of the bookfair cart object show up as okay. When I try to use the file accessing success.php which calls Blank.php in the UE script I get the following server error:

  Notice: Undefined variable: bookfair in /data/20/1/110/39/1925365/user/2098047/htdocs/ccdsnet/webassist/email/templates/Blank.php on line 6

Fatal error: Call to a member function GetContent() on a non-object in /data/20/1/110/39/1925365/user/2098047/htdocs/ccdsnet/webassist/email/templates/Blank.php on line 6  



bookfair is the name of the eCart object.

success.php/Blank.php attached. . .

Thanks,

Mike

perhaps the require once line needs to go down one more directory:

change
require_once("../../../WA_eCart/bookfair_PHP.php");


to:
require_once("../../../../WA_eCart/bookfair_PHP.php");

That triggers the Dynamically-related files DW error, and does not clear the red exclamation point. . .

what about running it in the browser?

the red excamation point only means that Dreamweaver does not recognize something. It may be a problem, it may not. If it runs OK in the browser, then you can ignore it.

it all boils down to the require once line. I dont know the exact structure of the files in your site, so cannot give the exact code that will be needed.

the require once line is a relative link to the ecart file in the WA_eCart directory, you may need to play with it to get the relative path ot go down the required number of directories to get to the root of the site.

If I ignore the exclamation point and try to run from the server I get the two errors first noted. It seems (according to the errors) that the eCart object isn't being found (per your reference to the include statement).

I understand that -- I think the site structure is okay when the Dynamically-related files error doesn't appear in DW. There are no page sub-directories (other than those created by the WA extensions). Apparently DW and running on the server see the same error as indicated by the exclamation point. Am I correct in presuming that the error means the cart object isn't available? FWIW -- I am using cookies to store the cart.
