Record not updating when applied to checkout page

Record not updating when applied to checkout page

So I'd like to capture the visitor information input on the checkout form into my visitors table. I've set the form to to auto fill based on records currently in the database but when using DataAssist I am not getting it to update when I change the pre-populated information. If I use the built in DW update record it doesn't pass the information to the confirm page but does update the database. If I use DataAssist I get the information passed to the confirm screen but the database is not updates. Any thoughts? I am using PHP.

Where did you apply the update server behavior? It should be applied on the confirm page.

Why does it go on the confirm page and not the checkout page?

Because the checkout page submits directly to the confirm page. Look at the form action. Functionality is always applied on the page specified as the form action.

The only problem I have with using the confirm page is that the form contains the shipping information but I was hoping to capture the billing information as well.

Any information from the checkout form is available on the confirm page... Unless I'm missing something and your billing information isn't on your checkout page? All of the form information is available on the page specified as the action of the form.

On the DW bindings tab, click the plus button and add the checkout page form references to the confirm page. It will allow you to easily reference all of those values.

Most will also exist in the hidden form that is submitted on the confirm page, so really you could upate when the confirm page is submitted instead.

So I added the form elements to the binding panel using the webassist Form Data function to expose the ecart_checkout_form. I used DataAssist on the confirm page to update the database form these variables and I get the same behavior as before. It is not updating the database record. I am using DataAssist 2.0.4

So I guess the 20th time for applying the behavior is the trick. It is now working and I'm not sure what I did differently. Thanks
