display price for sale

display price for sale

I am trying to display price of the items in the shopping cart differently if they are on sale. Instead of just displaying the sale price, I want to display the original price, with a line through it (<s> tag) and then the sale price.

I was unable to figgure out how to do it in the wizard using abs(), so I edited the code in the cart include file like this too make a display price

$itmObj->DisplayPrice = '<s>$'.number_format($itmObj->Price,2,'.',',').'</s>'.' $'.number_format($itmObj->SalePrice,2,'.',',');//t
$itmObj->DisplayPrice = '$'. number_format($itmObj->Price,2,'.',',');//t

This works fine, but now I cannot edit the cart object using the wizard anymore.

Is there a way to get this functionality using the wizard? ie make a column called DisplayPrice that works like this (perhaps using the abs() discussed in the tutorials.

If you had any help, I would greatly appreciate it!

Try using this calculation:
([OnSale] == 'Y')?('<s>'.number_format([Price],2,'.',',').'</s>'.number_format([SalePrice],2,'.',',')):number_format([Price],2,'.',',')

Ah yes, perfect! I got so caught up in the abs() method from the tutorial that I didnt even think about doing it that way. That adds a great deal of flexibility to the calculations.
