The e-commerce.

problem with includes/modules/order_details.php


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to alter the handling of product quantity for a client. She sells quilt fabric, and wants to have quantities in increments of .25 (i.e. 1.00, 1.25, 1.50, 1.75) Easy enough for me to round to the nearest quarter in javascript, but ran into a little snag in includes/modules/order_details.php:

// Quantity box or information as an input box or text
     echo '    <td align="center" valign="top">' . tep_draw_input_field('cart_quantity[]', $products[$i]['quantity'], 'size="4"') . tep_draw_hidden_field('products_id[]', $products[$i]['id']) . '</td>' . "\n";
   } else {
     echo '    <td align="center" valign="top" class ="main">' . $products[$i]['quantity'] . '</td>' . "\n";

This produces the following HTML output:

<input type="text" name="quantity[]" value="2" size="4"><input type="hidden" name="products_id[]" value="1">


Which is all well and good until you try to script through order quantities, validating each one along the way. in javascript "document.cart_quantity.cart_quantity[].value" is invalid, even though cart_quantity[] is the real name of the object.


The brackets at the end of this and other form elements should be removed from any future releases of osCommerce. Of course, if there's a REALLY good reason to keep them I'd love to know, as I'm getting rid of them on this install right now...
