    Default Dynamic Price Updater

    Hi

    I don't know if this module will be of any use to anyone but I've been asked to include it a couple of times so thought I'd release it into the wild to see if anyone can make use of it... Here's what it does:

    When you have a product with attributes that alter the price this module will update the price displayed on the page instantly... This gives customers an at-a-glance price total as opposed to having to work it out themselves

    The updater should (in theory) work with any amount of attributes

    There is a readme included in the ZIP but installation is literally to just upload the file... It overwrites nothing, has no database hooks and is completely autonomous... if it breaks just delete the file

    Currently it only works with attributes that are SELECTs... If it works for people I will update it to handle the radio boxes and checkboxes

    The file can be found at

    https://www.zen-cart.com/index.php?m...oducts_id=1973

    A working version can be seen at http://www.studio5.uk.com/index.php?...&products_id=3

    Let me know if it does/doesn't work or if anyone wants anything added or changed

    Dan

    Very nice Dan!
    Please do not PM for support issues: a private solution doesn't benefit the community.

    Be careful with unsolicited advice via email or PM - Make sure the person you are talking to is a reliable source.

    Thanks!

    Forgot to mention that at present the updater isn't currently currency-aware... If there is interest I will update that

    This means that if your currency symbol is anything but you need to open the jscript_updater.php file and set the UPDATER_CURRENCY_SYMBOL constant to your currency symbol (e.g. $)

    You can also alter the displayed text by changing the UPDATER_PREFIX_TEXT constant

    Looking nice ...

    Have you a solution to when coming from the Shopping Cart and attributes are already set so the price isn't starting at the original base but at the settings already set in the dropdowns?

    Hey now that's a great idea... I will look into it

    I'm trying to keep this mod as simple as possible (1 file, no adjustments) but I reckon that should be doable... I'll get the radio/check boxes working then I'll get onto a 'memory' for added products

    Thanks for the feedback... Looks like this might be worth building on

    That's good to hear... I genuinely thought it would be one of those things that only clients of ours would want lol

    Good news is I can update pre-selected attributes fairly easily... Should have that implemented over the weekend along with, hopefully, support for the other attribute types

    Watch this space and thanks to all for the positive feedback (especially at this early stage)

    I've updated the updater to handle previously set attributes (e.g. a customer clicking from their shopping cart)... As before the updater doesn't care where its values come from; it just 'reads' the page (sorta)

    One thing to note is that if you add a product to the cart then revisit that product through the normal channels (i.e. not clicking from the cart) the price will show as the starting price and the updater will not attempt to reconstruct the values in the cart... I consider this to be natural enough behaviour... A product with attributes can be ordered many times with different attributes for each shopping cart item... The updater respects this

    The link for the mod is http://chrome.me.uk/PriceUpdater.zip

    A working version is here http://www.studio5.uk.com/index.php?...&products_id=3 (this is always up-to-date because it's my testing ground for this)
