Hi to all, i am building a site using SS 3.0.3 along Swipestripe. I have two questions. Ive serached to no avail.

1) HOW TO RETRIEVE THE NUMBER OF ITEMS IN CART

This line

Hi Wilsonstaff,

I'll try and get the ball rolling on this discussion.
Hopefully I can help to push you in the right direction.

I'm not sure there is a direct answer for question number 1, as I don't think there is a total items variable available for you to use.
you may need to write something that takes advantage of the quantity variable, adding them together to give you a total.

to answer question 2, you will need to open the CMS and use the shop tab.
here's a few link to help you out:

thanks,

Sorry I missed this question although I think we've sorted it out via email, for anyone else searching..

1)
The Cart extension class is applied to Page_Controller so you should be able to access $Cart on all your pages (in this case some pages were directly inheriting from MultiLingualPage iirc which meant $Cart was not accessible on those page types). $Cart returns an object of type Order so $Cart.Items and $Cart.Products can be used in the template.

<ul class="shop-links">
  <% if CurrentMember %>
    <li><a href="$CartLink(Logout)" class="rev">log out</a></li>
    <li><a href="$CartLink(Account)" class="rev">your account</a></li>
  <% else %>
    <li><a href="$CartLink(Login)" class="rev">log in</a></li>
  <% end_if %>
 
  <li><a href="$CartLink">
    <i class="icon-shopping-cart icon-white"></i>
    $Cart.Products.Count
  </a></li>
</ul>

2)
Multiple currency support is a seperate module/extension for SwipeStripe: http://swipestripe.com/products/extensions/currency/. There is an extension class that is also applied to Page_Controller so to get the currency select form you just need to add: $CurrencyForm to a template.

The $CurrencyForm uses a select field that submits the form using javascript when the selected option changes.

Hi Frank

Is there a similar short code we can use to display the total value of the cart contents?

Cheers
