Evaluating if a item is in the shopping cart

Evaluating if a item is in the shopping cart

Is there a way to determine if a particular item is in the shopping cart by reading/evaluating the ecart variable?

For example, if there is a product in the shopping cart, I want to display a msg to the user.

eCart has a function named "InCart" that takes the items ID, for example you could test for an item with the ID of 1 in the cart using:

<?php if($eCart1->InCart("1") == true) echo("Your Message"); ?>

this example assumes that the name of your cart object is "eCart1", if you cart object is named differently, replace "eCart1" with the name of your cart object.
