"quote,check,install,remove and keys" functions in module's files


Recommended Posts



I'm new to oscommerce and I want to develop a module.

In the first file of the module which contains the class of the module, I saw that there are some functions like "quote,check,install,remove and keys" (class methods).

can somebody please explain me what these functions do?


ps: I think for the install or the remove it's clear, but not for the others.


thanks in advance

Quote is an optional method used by shipping modules to return a shipping quote.


Check checks to see if the module is installed and enabled.


Keys is an array of the database keys used by the install method. Keys are mainly used by the remove method to uninstall the module.


Install is used to add the database fields when the module is installed.




See my profile for a list of my addons and ways to get support.
