Call web service after order created


Call web service after order created

  • Call web service after order created
  • After a user checks out, I want to pass the order to a 3rd party web service. The two ways I can think of doing these are in Checkout.cs and Global.asax.cs.

    I extended the toolbox widget "Telerik.Sitefinity.Modules.Ecommerce.Orders.Web.UI.Checkout" and trying to use the PreRender or subscribe to one of the events. The events are not firing consistently though:

    using System;
    using Telerik.Sitefinity.Modules.Ecommerce.Orders.Web.UI;
    namespace SitefinityWebApp.Custom
        public class CustomCheckout : Checkout
            protected override void InitializeControls(Telerik.Sitefinity.Web.UI.GenericContainer container)
                this.ConfirmationStep.NextStepRequested += new EventHandler<EventArgs>(ConfirmationStep_NextStepRequested);
            protected override void OnPreRender(EventArgs e)
            void ConfirmationStep_NextStepRequested(object sender, EventArgs e)
            protected override void Step_NextStepRequested(object sender, EventArgs e)
                base.Step_NextStepRequested(sender, e);
            protected override void Step_StepChangedRequested(object sender, Telerik.Sitefinity.Modules.Ecommerce.Orders.Web.UI.RequestStepChangeEventArgs e)
                base.Step_StepChangedRequested(sender, e);
                switch (e.RequestedStep)
                    case CheckoutWizardStep.Confirmation:
                    case CheckoutWizardStep.Payment:
                    case CheckoutWizardStep.Preview:
                    case CheckoutWizardStep.ShippingAndBillingInformation:
                    case CheckoutWizardStep.ShippingOptions:

    Also here is what I could come up with in the Global.asax as another way:

        public class Global : System.Web.HttpApplication
            protected void Application_Start(object sender, EventArgs e)
                Telerik.Sitefinity.Modules.Ecommerce.Orders.OrdersManager.Executed += new EventHandler<Telerik.Sitefinity.Data.ExecutedEventArgs>(Orders_Executed);
            protected void Orders_Executed(object sender, Telerik.Sitefinity.Data.ExecutedEventArgs args)
                if (args.CommandName.StartsWith("Create")) //args.CommandName == "CreateOrderPayment")
                    var order = args.Data as Telerik.Sitefinity.Model.IOrderedItem;
                    //implement your logic here to send email notifications                  

    Can anyone shed light on the best way to do this?
  • Hello Basem,

    From what I understand you are trying to do some post purchase tasks after your order has been placed, but
    with 4.2 release the ways to override the default behaviour is minimal. We have since added two new events that you can subscribe in Global.asax to do custom tasks after an order is placed for the upcoming service pack release. We will also have examples on how to use these events in the SP release shortly on our blogs.

    Kind regards,
