Fedex Multiple Shipping Options

Fedex Multiple Shipping Options

I am having a hard time finding any information on setting up multiple shipping choices for Fedex in ecart 5.06. I would like the customer to be able to chose from the foloowing in a drop down

FedEx Ground
FedEx Overnight
FedEx 2 Day

There doesn't seem any information any where in the help or the site on how to do this. the only thing i could find is

Service type: Selects the specific kind of service desired. To allow the customer to choose the option, insert the FedEx Service Type snippet in the shipping form and select that form list's name from the Dynamic Data dialog.

FedEx Service Type snippet? what s this? I thought multiple selection for shipping options would be the default.

Is there some where I am not looking?

the snippet is available by going to window -> Snippets.

in the snippets window go to eCart -> Shipping -> FedEx Sevices to add the services list to the checkout page:

<select name="FedEx_Service" id="FedExService">

  <option value="PRIORITYOVERNIGHT" selected>Priority Overnight</option>
  <option value="STANDARDOVERNIGHT">Standard Overnight</option>
  <option value="FIRSTOVERNIGHT">First Overnight</option>
  <option value="FEDEX2DAY">FedEx 2 Day</option>
  <option value="FEDEXEXPRESSSAVER">FedEx Express Saver</option>
  <option value="INTERNATIONALPRIORITY">International Priority</option>
  <option value="INTERNATIONALECONOMY">International Economy</option>
  <option value="INTERNATIONALFIRST">International First</option>
  <option value="FEDEX1DAYFREIGHT">FedEx 1 Day Freight</option>
  <option value="FEDEX2DAYFREIGHT">FedEx 2 Day Freight</option>
  <option value="FEDEX3DAYFREIGHT">FedEx 3 Day Freight</option>
  <option value="FEDEXGROUND">FedEx Ground</option>
  <option value="GROUNDHOMEDELIVERY">Ground Home Delivery</option>
  <option value="INTERNATIONALPRIORITY FREIGHT">International Priority Freight</option>
  <option value="INTERNATIONALECONOMY FREIGHT">International Economy Freight</option>
  <option value="EUROPEFIRSTINTERNATIONALPRIORITY">Europe First International Priority</option>

after adding the services list to the checkout page, open the confirm page, near the bottom, there is a collection of hidden form elements, add another one with the same name as the services list, to capture the value posted by the checkout page:

<input name="FedEx_Service" type="hidden" id="FedEx_Service" value="<?php echo((isset($_POST["FedEx_Service"]))?$_POST["FedEx_Service"]:""?>" />

then add a set session value behavior, go to the server behaviors panel, click the plus button and select eCart -> General -> Set Session Value for the trigger, select any form post.

set the name to FedEx_Service for the value, click the lightning bolt and select the FedEx_Service form element.

in the fed ex server behavior, bind the servicer setting to the FedEx_Service session variable.

Thanks I wouldn't have found that in a million years. You may want to add that somewhere in the ecart help area unless I was looking in the wrong place.
