Create a general qty for all items in cart.

I am creating a cart for catering service where i would like the qty to be the option for guest count. so far everything working ok but instead of displaying separate qty for individual items i would like it to be for all items. All items would have a single qty value .

Product Price
--------------------------------
steak $5
potatoes $1

__________________
Guest Count 25 Minimum

Total: (item+item)*guestcount

Sorry for replying so late, right now I have it as the Qty for each item.

Qty is the guest count, but what i would like to do is have the qty(guest count) be global for all items in cart, if possible.

before they start adding items to the cart, have a page where they select the number of guests, use a form with a select list:
10
25
50
etc

when that is submitted use the Set Session Value server behavior to store the guest count selection in a session.

in the add to cart behavior, use the guest count session for the quantity.

i don't know if my last question went through, how to i get the total number of rows in cart?

Not sure I follow:

The total number of line items in the cart, or the total Quantity for the cart?

if the total number of line items, add a new column to the cart for example, lets call the column lineCount. In the add to cart buttons set that column to 1.

you can then get the total number of line items using:

<?php echo $cartName->TotalColumn("lineCount"); ?>

where cartName is name of the cart object.

if you want total quantity:
<?php echo $cartName->TotalColumn("Quantity"); ?>
