eCart - Creating order size pulldown buttons

eCart - Creating order size pulldown buttons

Hi Jason,

How can I create a pull down button to give my customer the choice of ordering sizes like Small, Medium, Large etc with price options corresponding to each size?

Can this be done in eCart? Is there php script already created I can use?

Also, Once I have created a master page designed with my products, buttons, descriptions and images etc., can I save this page as a template so I do not have to recreate the page again? Do I have to save the master page as a template first before linking to a detail page? I would assume so?

Please advise and direct me to resources or tutorials if possible.

there is a tutorial for product options on the eCart support page:

templates are used for site designs, and should not have functionality like recordsets or add to cart buttons applied to them, the products master page should not be saved as a template.

Dynamically related files not resolved

Hi Jason,

I am getting a message on the site we were working on the other day where we had no problems creating dynamic records?

Error: Dynamically related files could not be resolved because of an internal error?

I just noticed this note about a syntax error on line 40 of my code:

}if (!function_exists("GetSQLValueString")) {
function GetSQLValueString($theValue, $theType, $theDefinedValue = "", $theNotDefinedValue = "")

What did I do to create this syntax error? I do a recordset test and I can see all my records, I test the server and it is connected? Attached is a copy of my server behaviors with a very long code string could this be the problem?

I was able to view the Name in my first record on my master page from my new database - displaying Autograph Photo Sportsballs, with the quantity and the Add to cart button. I do not know what I did but I can not see my site in a browser? Where are these dynamically related files located to resolve this issue?

I added {rsProduct.ItemThumb} to the page and the file name came up from my database and not the image.
How do I link the image to the Thumbnail and image code?

Also, I downloaded SQLPro and accessed my database while working on my site. Could this be effecting the site?

Is there a way to create an excel type spreadsheet to import the data into my fields in my database all in one shot?

Add A Click for Details text & a link to view Details Page

Hi Jason,

Q - How do I add a text (See Details) to my recordset and create a link to the product details page?

See Attachment Products Results Recordset - Is an image of the recordset I created.
Q - Is this done correctly and should I add anything additional?

See Attachment AZ Products Results Pg - Is an image of my Dynamic Text records results pg. The recordset (rs_products_results_pg) is my results page recordset but...

Q - What is the AZ_Products_cart list below it?
Q - Is this the recordset I use for my product details page?

See Attachment Your Recordset - Is this like the your recordest (RSitems) on your page that your created?

Q - Can you review how to use the Insert Repeat feature.
Q - How to link images to both pages, as well as linking to the results page?

You covered so much the other day. I have been reviewing what you did on your pages to see if I can figure it out but I am not sure I can.

I put my button in an AP div in stead of a table. I am creating a CSS template to put my buttons and images in

Q - Is there any advantage or disadvantage to doing it this way.

See Attachment ItemThumb image - This is the web view of my cart bottom. I have listed in my database the actual name of the file in the ItemThumb column.

Q - How do I get the actual thumb nail image to show in place of the image file name?
Q - Can I have the actual URL link in this column?

Also, do you want me to start a new thread when something new happens or continue with this thread?

Thank for your help!
