Identify item just added to cart.

Identify item just added to cart.

I have a repeat region with multiple "Add To Cart" buttons on the page.

After adding an item to the cart, the page redirects to itself.

I want to trigger a shadowbox html page on redirect to the page based on the item that was just added to the cart.

( I have a shadowbox working already from a link in the repeat region near the "add t cart" button to display recommended items for that item.

Is there a way to identify the ID or name of the item just added to the cart after redirect, so I can use it to trigger the shadowbox automatically based in the item just added?

Hopefully I have explained this OK

when an item is added t the cart, it is added at the end. you can use the move last function to get the last item in the cart and get it's ID:


<?php
$cartName->MoveLast();
echo($cartName->DisplayInfo("ID"));
$cartName>MoveFirst();
?>

Thanks Jason, I believe I can use this in conjunction with a copy of the Add To Cart form post.

e.g. To get the item ID only after Add To Cart is used and not when page loads normally.

<?php
if (isset($_POST["eCart1_1_ATC"]) || isset($_POST["eCart1_1_ATC_x"])) {
$eCart1->MoveLast();
echo($eCart1->DisplayInfo("ID"));
$eCart1->MoveFirst();
} ?>

The above works as required to just get the ID. It's a start.

I think I will be able to make up a line of code to automatically display the shadowbox with the recommended items based on the item's "ID" and if an "ID" is present.

So far so good, thanks again.
