    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

    Hi Dan and thanks for getting back to me.

    Sorry to read about all this trouble though. I hope something can be worked out and this thread along with DPU is not deleted as I believe it to be a most worthwhile addition to ZenCart and at the very least I would like to say thank you for creating it and giving up what you have in supporting it so that others can use it.

    Please give me a day or two to re-enable the mod or install it on my test cart as I have a couple of things I am working on at the moment. So I will get back to you shortly.

    Thank you again!

    Moderator note: all threads in the last 24 hours related to where this module lives have been deleted.

    Fresh start:
    Chrome, you are a valued member of the community.
    The community has rules. Everyone is subject to them.
    One of the rules is that contributions be submitted to the Free Software Add Ons area with a GPL license.

    People are allowed to attach zip files to posts, but these are intended to be temporary (to permit beta testing and so forth), not long lasting.

    As the moderator of that area, one of the things I do is reject changes that third parties make to mods which are still being actively supported. So when you submit a mod, as long as you support your mod, you will be the only one allowed to change it.

    Please go ahead and submit your mod using the "Submit your file" link at the top right of

    http://www.zen-cart.com/index.php?ma...index&cPath=40

    Once that's done, the zip will be removed from the first entry of this thread and replaced with a link to the Free Software Add Ons area.

    No hard feelings. Let's all work together for the good of the community.

    Hi CybaGirl

    I apologise, because of the other conversation I missed your reply. Thank you for your support . Please, test in your own time, I really appreciate the feedback; it's because of a lack of time that I'm unable to create these test environments (I tried taking the laptop to bed to see if I could sleep-code but... Well, let's just not speak of it)

    As soon as you have time please let me know your findings and I'll get on it

    Dan
