The e-commerce.

Taking data from the DB and displaying images

So, I have an idea for the points and rewards module. I havent installed it yet, this is just something that I am thinking of.. I'm assuming that the points are added under each customer's table in the database..

 

I would like to show a graph type of image. Something like those giant thermometeres that people use when collecting money for a donation.

 

So set it up so that every $25 you spend, you get a point, and you need 4 points to get something for free.. So I can create 4 different graphics, one for each point.. and as a visitor collects points, it will show different images, looking like the graph is growing..

 

I'm sure its a simple process of creating 4 images, naming them 1-4 and calling for image #1 when 1 point is present, image #2 when 2 points are present and so on.

 

Just curious if there is anywhere in the code where something similar to this is happening, so I can look at it and do what I do best.. hack it up till it works.

Hi Lindsay, this is the code for review stars, you could hack that to your needs:

 

tep_image(DIR_WS_CATALOG_IMAGES . 'stars_' . $_POST['reviews_rating'] . '.gif'

there is no function, $_POST['reviews_rating'] is the data (1 - 5)

 

u would replace that with dbase data ie $rewards['points']
