eCart 5 Product Options

eCart 5 Product Options

What is the nest way to add a STYLE to a product. One style will cost more than the other.

For example: T-shirt Short Sleeve and Long Sleeve.

When I pick Short Sleeve, I want 1 price and when I pick Long Sleeve, I want another price.

before we get into the mechanics, is the price difference between short sleeve and long sleeve going to differ from product to product? or will it always be the same?

It will be the same for all products.

For example: short sleeve $15, long sleeve $20

Ok, so Long Sleeve adds $5 to the price.

1) in the eCart object, add a new column named "style" (NOTE: after adding a new column to the cart, you will need to edit any add to cart buttons behaviors on your site to have the code regenerated to include the new column)

2) in the add to cart button behavior, set the style column to be updatable as a select list. in the select list that is added to the page, add the short sleeve and long sleeve options.

set the price column to the regular short sleeved price

3) in the eCart object, on the calculations tab, create a new calculation named "realPrice" as:

php:
(abs([style] = "Long Sleeve"))?[Price] + 5:[Price]



this is a short hand if statement that basically says

If the style is Long Sleeve return the Price + 5 Else just return the Price

so if it is long sleeve, it returns 20, if not it returns 15.

4) on the calculations tab, edit the Total rice calculation:

php:
[Price] * [Quantity]



to:

php:
((abs([style] = "Long Sleeve"))?[Price] + 5:[Price]) * [Quantity]



4) on the cart display page, where it shows the price, replace that with the truePrice binding.

After doing all this, I get the following error on the products page (store.php)

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '[', expecting ')' in /homepages/20/d184490718/htdocs/DeezNutz/WA_eCart/eCart1_PHP.php on line 10

this means that you didn't name the column "style" you named it something else. Remember, php is case sensitive so "Style" and "style" are not the same thing.

so when you added the new column, what did you name it?

The error is gone.

I have the price field on the STORE.PHP page. How would I make this field change depending on if I select "Short Sleeve" or "Long Sleeve"?

Also, the cart.php page is not displaying the realprice.

I attached 2 files.

it would be easier to edit the Long Sleeve option to show +$5

<option value="Long Sleeve">Long Sleeve (add $5)</option>



when you created the calculation, did you name it realPrice or realPrice:

you have the code for binding using the name RealPrice:
<?php echo $eCart1->DisplayInfo("RealPrice"); ?>
