add to cart button

add to cart button

when I place the add to cart button in the dreamweaver, the setting window pops up and I can choose the recordset and ID column on the general tab and the matching record value for the other columns on the binding tab,
but I can not choose exact product for the button.
How can I specify the exact product in the database?
In other words, when I click the lighting bolt button to choose the default value for each column I see subcategories of the record set such as ID, SKU, price and so on, but I cannot specify the exact product for the button. Where can I do it?
I am using ecart 5 and dataassist with eCommerce mySQL Database provided by the webassist.
Please help thanks,

are you adding the add to cart button to a data assist results page? Or to a product Details page?


In the case of a results page, the add to cart button will loop for each record in the results set. the add to cart button creates a hidden form element for the product ID and is set to use the ID column from the recordset, each add to cart button will be set to the ID for the particular product, this will set which product the add to cart button is for.

On a results page, the recordset will be filtered to only show one record based on a querystring variable, this will set the product the add to cart button is for.

Hi Jason,
I am adding the buttons on our original catalog pages, each page has 10-20 products.
So there is no searching process on the catalog.
I think I figured it out.
I set the SKU to be used for the record set ID, and I put the SKU digit for the ID value manually on the bindings tab. Is it the right way?

Thanks Jason,
Another question,
Our product is usually only one item, so if people purchase the item we want to replace the "add to cart" button with sold out icon, I am getting support ticket for this, and wondering what kind of support ticket is best for this? Premium or Premier?
Also we like to put the "term of use" condition on the site, and put the required check box to agree with the term before the checkout process, would you tell me how we can do it or guide us where we can find the information to add that function?

You should sign up for a premiere ticket for the Sold Out option.

for the terms of use, add the checkbox to the checkout page, set the checked value to 1, then add required not blank validation to the confirm page.

see the following thread for details on using server validation with the checkout -> confirm pages in eCart:
