tax applied if item is taxable and in a specific state

Hi Ray,

I have a tax setup that is partially working.

I have a trigger set for a specific column value of "taxable" is 1.
This would apply the .085 tax.

I also need it to based on the state value of SC.
I add the trigger:

AND Session variable WASF_CheckoutWizard_NewFromBlank_Default = SC
but then it does not apply the tax now matter what state or items or in the cart.

//eCart Rule
function WAEC_eCart1_salestax2() {
$totalTax = 0;
if (true && (($this->ConditionalTotal("Quantity", "taxable", "1") > 0) && ((isset($_SESSION['WASF_CheckoutWizard_NewFromBlank_Default'])?$_SESSION['WASF_CheckoutWizard_NewFromBlank_Default']:"") == "SC"))) {
$totalTax += ($this->ConditionalTotal("TotalPrice", "taxable", "1") * .085);//Result
return WA_eCart_FormatNumber($totalTax, $this->ForceDecimalsC, $this->DecimalPlacesC);
//eCart Rule

What am I missing?

On the confirm_cart.php page you will need to save the session variable... So add code like this:

if (isset($_POST['State_2'])) {
$_SESSION['ShipState'] = $_POST['State_2'];

Then use the session variable ShipState in your rule.

The session variable you are using now is from the persistent form and is actually an array of all of the session values, so you can't use it to refer to a specific field like you are attempting.
