  • Hi Webgobe
    Really like your hack and the way you support it!

    I am using Virtuemart 1.1.4 with Joomla 1.5.18

    I installed the basic version of the customattributesextendedwindow and have used the basic example as given in the txt file -
    Fenetre (window)(|)(350|350|1800|2100|10|2|200);

    although the cart is updated it doesn't seem to change the price and I get an error -
    Error: Width not in allowed limits, values entered for dimensions will be ignored, defaults will be used instead.
    even though I clearly enter a width in limits

    I am thinking that the javascript isn't working and that the values aren't being sent with the form but can't work out why...

    The test environment is at;

    I would appreciate any insight !

  • Aaaargh... Mynxx again...
    OK, here what I think you have:
    a. You don't use the default VM template, but part of the hacked files are modifyed files belonging to the default VM template. So, you need to examine the files in the /components/com_virtuemart/themes/default folder of the hack, see which of them are missing from the /components/com_virtuemart/themes/default folder and replicate the changes/copy the files to your template, in your case the /components/com_virtuemart/themes/vm_mynxx files. Be aware, that simply overwritting here the existing files won't work, so I recommend you, to copy only the missing files, and replicate by hand the changes to the rest of the files. Can be tricky, I know...
    b. You use Mynxx... that's a problem. I love RocketTheme templates - I have developer account with them - but I guess Mynxx is the buggies theme ever from what they released. So performing the tasks in point a. may still leave you with some problems, but the good news are that those can be handled.

  • Thanks for the pointers & advice - I still need to look through those files to see whats missing.
    meanwhile I spent some time playing with the javascript and got it working - I changed your totalprice function to use the getElementById

    Meanwhile my real purpose was to extend your 2D version to 3D and add a depth component so that I can work out the price of a block given a unit price per cubic metre etc.

    my javascript now looks like this;

    function totalprice()
    		var pricecbm = $price
    			a = document.getElementById('".$field['attr_pagevar']."_field1').value
    			a = $default_block_width
    			b = document.getElementById('".$field['attr_pagevar']."_field2').value
    		    b = $default_block_height
    			c = document.getElementById('".$field['attr_pagevar']."_field3').value
    		    c = $default_block_depth
    			d = \"$with_rolo\"
    		    d = \"\"
    		x = a * b * c /1000000 * pricecbm
    		y =  a+\"*\"+b+\"*\"+c
    		document.getElementById('".$field['attr_pagevar']."').value = y
    		document.getElementById('".$field['attr_pagevar']."_feedback').value = x

    I added an extra input field so that people can see what the new price is for the dimensions they enter...

    the extra html looks like this
    $html .= "<br /><input id=\"".$field['attr_pagevar']."_feedback\" name=\"".$field['attr_pagevar']."_feedback\" type=\"text\"  readonly=true />
    <input id=\"".$field['attr_pagevar']."\" name=\"".$field['attr_pagevar']."\" type=\"hidden\"  readonly=true />";

    the feedback field shows the dynamic price
    the other returns the values to the cart

    any ideas how to offer different substances the block is made of at different prices per unit volume and show a comparison?

    if not I'm happy with this result and can move forward...

    Thanks again for your effort and offering the downloads etc - very helpful

  • I'd like to test your mods - and eventually to include it in the download.
    For the other problem (substances and eventually price comparation) Look at the Pizza attribute I made, you will got some ideeas ;)
