Update Order Summary on page load

Update Order Summary on page load


Looking at the code the insert order summary can also update as well as insert.

Im looking to update a feild if a user goes to another page i.e.

User chooses a different payment type the order summary will update on page load

It seems as though $updateFieldValue="" is where you can change the feature but I dont know to set it to say 1 or the name of the field to update?

Any help is always helpful.

the store order summary behavior stores the ID of the order that is inserted in a session variable. If that session does not exist, it performs an insert, if that session does exist, it performs an update.

you could add a store order summary behavior to the page and set the trigger to before page load, then on the bindings tab, set the value of the column to update to 1, This will really only work though if the only way to get to this page is after the order summary has been set initially.

Update Order Summary on page load

Hello, Thanks for the reply.

I already have the server behavior on the page.

1. It is set to run on page load (""= "")
2. The order summary is already inserted and session (id_ord) is set from the previous landing page.
3. The behaivor is not updating even though two of the fields have changed from the previous insert.

Should it be automatically updating? Because currently it is not?

if ("" == "") // Trigger
$WA_connection = $myconnection;
$WA_table = "orders";
$WA_redirectURL = "";
