Adding <select> Items to Cart

I have An Item Select Page where Training Packages can be purchased for a specified player.

The Player is selected from a recordset filtered by the User's ID, and chosen by a <select> and Dynamic <option> form> (Code follows)

*****************************************************************************************
<form id="playerSelect" name="playerSelect" style="margin:10px 100px;">
<fieldset title="">
<select name="Player" id="Player">
<option value=0>Select a Player to Sign Up</option>
<?php
// RepeatSelectionCounter_1 Begin Loop
$RepeatSelectionCounter_1_IterationsRemaining = $RepeatSelectionCounter_1_Iterations;
while($RepeatSelectionCounter_1_IterationsRemaining--){
if($RepeatSelectionCounterBasedLooping_1 || $row_myPlayers){
?> <option value="<?php echo $row_myPlayers['id']; ?>"><?php echo $row_myPlayers['playerFirstName']." ".$row_myPlayers['playerLastName']; ?></option>
<?php
} // RepeatSelectionCounter_1 Begin Alternate Content
else{
?>
<?php } // RepeatSelectionCounter_1 End Alternate Content
if(!$RepeatSelectionCounterBasedLooping_1 && $RepeatSelectionCounter_1_IterationsRemaining != 0){
if(!$row_myPlayers && $RepeatSelectionCounter_1_Iterations == -1){$RepeatSelectionCounter_1_IterationsRemaining = 0;}
$row_myPlayers = mysql_fetch_assoc($myPlayers);
}
$RepeatSelectionCounter_1++;
} // RepeatSelectionCounter_1 End Loop
?>
</select><br><br><br>

</fieldset>
</form>

***********************************************************************'

Then a second Form is revealed, with a <select> and Dynamic <option> providing a list of available packages

************************************************************************

<form id="TrainSelect" name="TrainSelect" style="margin:10px 100px;">
<fieldset>
<select name="TO" id-"TO">
<option>Select a Training Option</option>
<?php
// RepeatSelectionCounter_2 Begin Loop
$RepeatSelectionCounter_2_IterationsRemaining = $RepeatSelectionCounter_2_Iterations;
while($RepeatSelectionCounter_2_IterationsRemaining--){
if($RepeatSelectionCounterBasedLooping_2 || $row_trainingOptions){
?>
<option value="<?php echo $row_trainingOptions['ProductID']; ?>" alt="<?php echo $row_trainingOptions['ProductLongDesc']; ?>" title="<?php echo $row_trainingOptions['ProductLongDesc']; ?>"><?php echo $row_trainingOptions['ProductShortDesc']; ?></option>
<?php
} // RepeatSelectionCounter_2 Begin Alternate Content
else{
?>
<?php } // RepeatSelectionCounter_2 End Alternate Content
if(!$RepeatSelectionCounterBasedLooping_2 && $RepeatSelectionCounter_2_IterationsRemaining != 0){
if(!$row_trainingOptions && $RepeatSelectionCounter_2_Iterations == -1){$RepeatSelectionCounter_2_IterationsRemaining = 0;}
$row_trainingOptions = mysql_fetch_assoc($trainingOptions);
}
$RepeatSelectionCounter_2++;
} // RepeatSelectionCounter_2 End Loop
?>
</select>
</fieldset>
</form>

***************************************************************

What is the best way to bind the information from these two drop-downs to the PlayerID and ItemID in the cart Object??

Thanks,

Mike

add hidden elements to the second form to capture the values posted from the first

use the add to cart server behavior.

on the server behaviors panel, click the plus button and select eCart -> Add to Cart -> add to cart.

in the bindings section, bind the cart column to the corresponding form elements from the second form. also, set the trigger to the submit button for the second form.

I'm probably not adding the value from the first form correctly. The page reloads and the "PlayID" variable in the address bar is empty. The value for the Item is passed correctly.

Here's how I'm adding the value to the hidden <input>:

<input type="hidden" value="<?php echo((isset($_POST["Player"]))?$_POST["Player"]:"") ?>" name="PlayID">

Chosen by dragging the Binding for the First form element to the page.

Obviously not right. . .

Code for the Add to Cart Behavior:

*****************************************
<?php
// WA eCart Trigger AddToCart
if (isset($_POST["ATC_Submit"])){
$cart = $sherwin1;
$ATC_itemID = "1";
$ATC_AddIfIn = 0;
$ATC_RedirectAfter = "mycart.php";
$ATC_RedirectIfIn = "";
$ATC_itemName = "";// column binding
$ATC_itemDescription = "";// column binding
$ATC_itemThumbnail = "";// column binding
$ATC_itemWeight = floatval("0");// column binding
$ATC_itemQuantity = floatval("".$_POST["sherwin1_1_Quantity_Add"] ."");// column binding
$ATC_itemPrice = floatval("0");// column binding
$ATC_itemPlayerID = floatval("".((isset($_POST["PlayID"]))?$_POST["PlayID"]:"") ."");// column binding
$ATC_itemItemID = floatval("".((isset($_POST["TO"]))?$_POST["TO"]:"") ."");// column binding
$ATC_itemQuantity = floatval($ATC_itemQuantity);
if (is_numeric($ATC_itemQuantity) && $ATC_itemQuantity != 0) {
$cart->AddToCart($ATC_AddIfIn, $ATC_RedirectIfIn, $ATC_itemID, $ATC_itemName, $ATC_itemDescription, $ATC_itemThumbnail, $ATC_itemWeight, $ATC_itemQuantity, $ATC_itemPrice, $ATC_itemPlayerID, $ATC_itemItemID);
if ($ATC_RedirectAfter != "" && $cart->redirStr == "") {
$cart->redirStr = $ATC_RedirectAfter;
}
if (isset($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING']) && $_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'] != "") {
$_SESSION['WAEC_ContinueRedirect'] = $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']."?".$_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'];
}
else {
$_SESSION['WAEC_ContinueRedirect'] = $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'];
}
}
}
?>

looks correct. I'll need to troubleshoot directly, see the private message section.

i see, the first form uses the GET method, so:
<input type="hidden" value="<?php echo((isset($_POST["Player"]))?$_POST["Player"]:"") ?>" name="PlayID">

should be:
<input type="hidden" value="<?php echo((isset($_GET["Player"]))?$_GET["Player"]:"") ?>" name="PlayID">


on the second form, change the method to post, the add to cart button will need to have the form sent using the post method instead of the get method.

Okay -- made the following changes:

<input type="hidden" value="<?php echo((isset($_GET["Player"]))?$_GET["Player"]:"") ?>" name="PlayID"> (hidden element)

<form class="secCopy" id="TrainSelect" name="TrainSelect" style="margin:10px 100px;" method="post"> (2nd form)

<input type="submit" name="ATC_Submit" id="Submit" value="Submit" formmethod="post"> (Submit Button)

Now the page reloads with just the filename in the address bar -- no other arguments. . .

Thanks. . .

right, because it is using the post method, you should set the eCart add to cart behavior to redirect to a cart display page.

I have redirect set to mycart.php.
