Help on eCart.

I have become successful in Adding Digital File Pro to DataAssist Insert and Update Pages. Now i added products, images, price & etc in the database.. Im facing few problems in eCart..
i.e how do we link the product in DB to ecart ..
Ex: Lets say i have a text field, in that text field user types the productName & i want that product details to appear & that product must be added to the cart.. So please tell me how do we do that..?
btw there is going to be only one Ecart button ok. so depending upon text entered in field, it must filter the productName in DB & must view detail about the product with image & then must be added to cart..

I tried but i think i have gone wrong somewhere.. i added productsname, price etc in DB but then how to link with Ecart..?


I have attached a image hope from that you will be able to understand better..

Wooo..

I got to know how we do it.. Thanks to support in eCart . i went through this link & made it all..
ecart_multiple_atc.pdf

I did by reading - - - Setting*the*WA*Database*Search*statement

Now product is getting added to cart when i type proper ProductName but facing only 1 single problem.. i m getting error when i click add to cart

ERROR:
Notice: Undefined variable: ATC_itemQuantity

Another thing is when directly we click Add to cart button all items from recordset gets displayed in cart.. & if we type any other product name in text field i get error like the same as above.. So please help on that... :)

you should be using data assist to create a search results and details page.

on the details page, add an add to cart button to add the product to the cart.

to remove the quantity from the add to cart button, set the Editable option to none, and hard code the quantity to 1.

I didnt get you

Jason i didn't get you..
Can u explain me how exactly do make it proper..? I keep getting error in page where there is add to cart button...

Let me explain clearly once again..

1---> I have a page there is a ADDTOCART button & a text... User need to enter the productName in text & then must click ADDTOCART... So when they enter proper productName which is stored already in Product DB, it gets added to cart... But when they enter wrong productName all the products in product DB gets added to CART.. So this is the problem.. & sometimes when i type proper productName also in cart i get error like ERROR:
Notice: Undefined variable: ATC_itemQuantity c:/ . . .. in line *** etc etc

2---> i want to know how to display error message when wrong productName is entered.. please help..

the way you are doing this is not correct.

dont add to cart based on the search.

instead, you should have a search page, a results page that shows the items returned by the search, the results page should have a link to the product details page to show details for that product.

use the data assist wizard to create the search results and details page.

then add an eCart add to cart button to the details page.
