Show/Hide Product Options Select Menu

Show/Hide Product Options Select Menu

I did the tutorial on Product Options and it worked perfectly. Now I need to control the visibility of the options select menu as some of my products have only size options, some only color, and some no options. I used the eCommerce database structure so my option names are in the optionsgroups table. I'm hoping there is some code that will display the options select menu for color only if the product has color options, etc. Any help?

if you are using a recordset to populate the option list, you can use the Dreamweaver Show region behavior around the list to show it only if the recordset is not empty.

Thanks

That's it Jason. Thanks. This is only my 3rd dynamic site so I'm still learning all the features. By the by, I had one small problem with the Product Options with eCart tutorial. When I copied and pasted the code from the tutorial into the SQL box of the Recordset dialog, it added an extra space and/or a hidden special character just after the WHERE clause which gave me a syntax error (I detailed this in a feedback to the tutorial on Friday). This happened for both the color and size recordsets. FYI - I'm using Safari 5.1.5 and Dreamweaver Mac 10.0.

I have forwarded this to our documentation team so they can look into it.
