ecart 5 (static cart) display manager help

Hi - My business has 4 products but each product has 7 to 9 product options (text fields, dropdown boxes). On my cart page, I can get it to list all the product options along with what the customer has entered for those options. My problem is that I don't want the cart to list an option for a product that does not have that option. (Ex: 2 products have the option of motif and 2 do not) How would I go about fixing this?

And my second question is exactly what is meant when I select a product option as unique?

Thanks, Christie

In the display manager, add each of the option bindings to the same column. add the first option column to the display, then add the second option column and select the option to crroup with the previous column, add each of the other columns using the same group option.

when a column is set as unique, it allows that column to control whether a new line item is created for unique values.

for example, say you had a shirt with color options.

you would want the color column to be unique so that the shirt with red option selected would be a separate line item from the shirt with yellow selected.

I completely understand the "unique" column thing now. Thanks.

For the display manager I believe I did that. When the product has the option motif, it displays: Motif: butterfly. When the product does not have the option, it displays: Motif:
And I would like the shopping cart not to list motif as the customer could not select it for that product.

Ok, this one worked.

in the cart display code add an if statement around each option display.

for example, change:

Motif:&nbsp;<?php echo $eCart1->DisplayInfo("motif"); ?>

to:
<?php if($eCart1->DisplayInfo("motif") != "") { ?>Motif:&nbsp;<?php echo $eCart1->DisplayInfo("motif"); ?><?php } ?>
