Update Cart Question

Update Cart Question

One of the fields in my db is reserveDate. This is a timestamp that saves the time someone adds an item to their cart. Visitors have 30 minutes to finish and process their cart, and if the item is not purchased the item shows as available 30 minutes later.

I'm wondering where in the cart UpdateCart function I would put code to set this field to 0 if they remove an item from their cart prior to checking out. Obviously it need to process all items that are checked to be deleted.

Thanks,

you would need to hand code this in the Update Cart server behavior that is added to the page.

the update cart behavior would look similar to:

php:
<?php

// WA eCart Update
if (isset($_POST["eCart3_Update_100"]) || isset($_POST["eCart3_Update_100_x"]))     {
  
$eCart3->UpdateCart();
  
$Redirect_redirStr="";
  if (
$Redirect_redirStr != "")     {
    
$eCart3->redirStr $Redirect_redirStr;
  }
  
$eCart3->cartAction "Update";
}
?>

Thanks -- I know the code to update the db, but where would I add it to insure that all updated records are changed?? Would it be after this:

php:
$eCart3->UpdateCart();

sure, it could be after the line:

php:
$eCart3->UpdateCart();



or it could be after this line:

php:
$eCart3->cartAction = "Update";




you could even create a new code block to perform the update and use the trigger if statement around it:

php:
<?php if (isset($_POST["eCart3_Update_100"]) || isset($_POST["eCart3_Update_100_x"]))     { 
<
update code here>
}
?>



the point is to trigger the update when the update button is pressed.
