eCart Cookie error

Thread began 3/07/2013 5:34 am by jackson446396 | Last modified 3/08/2013 5:51 am by jackson446396 | 495 views | 2 replies |


eCart Cookie error


I've been using eCart for a few years and have always stored the cart details using session variables. I'm now looking to change this so the cart is stored in cookies instead.

In the code I changed the PersistanceType to 1 but when I ran the website it returned an error as certain functions couldn’t be found in WA_eCart_Definition_PHP.php

Please can you provide the PHP code for the following functions:
- SetCookies
- SetCookieInfo
- GetCookies

Many thanks

the exact code will depend on the columns in your cart. This is the code generated for the default columns:

ID, Name, Description, Thumbnail, Weight, Quantity, Price

//get cookies

function GetCookies($ItemString)     {
  $itemArray = explode("|WAEC|", $ItemString);
   $itemID = $itemArray[0];
   $itemName = $itemArray[1];
   $itemDescription = $itemArray[2];
   $itemThumbnail = $itemArray[3];
   $itemWeight = $itemArray[4];
   $itemQuantity = $itemArray[5];
   $itemPrice = $itemArray[6];
  return new eCart1_ItemDefinition($itemID, $itemName, $itemDescription, $itemThumbnail, $itemWeight, $itemQuantity, $itemPrice);
//get cookies
//set cookies
function SetCookies($itemIndex)     {
  $ItemString = "";
  $ItemString .= $this->Items[$itemIndex]->ID."|WAEC|";
  $ItemString .= $this->Items[$itemIndex]->Name."|WAEC|";
  $ItemString .= $this->Items[$itemIndex]->Description."|WAEC|";
  $ItemString .= $this->Items[$itemIndex]->Thumbnail."|WAEC|";
  $ItemString .= $this->Items[$itemIndex]->Weight."|WAEC|";
  $ItemString .= $this->Items[$itemIndex]->Quantity."|WAEC|";
  $ItemString .= $this->Items[$itemIndex]->Price;
  return $ItemString;
//set cookies
//cookie information
function SetCookieInfo($theCookieString)     {
  $numDays   = 14;
  $theDomain = "";
  $thePath   = "";
  $cookSec   = false;
  if ($numDays == "") $numDays="0";
  $theDate = strtotime("+".$numDays." Days");
  setcookie($this->CartName."_Items", $theCookieString, $theDate, $thePath, $theDomain, $cookSec);
//cookie information
