ProductType custom fields on widget template

  • ProductType custom fields on widget template
  • I have created a product type and added custom fields.
    I added the Catalog widget to a page, and I click the Edit button to see the widget properties dialog.
    I go to the single item settings, and I have created a template there by copy/pasting the "Product Details" template found in the Widget Templates list.

    I would like to explicitly reference my added fields on this template but I cannot get it to work.
    The template does include a reference to "sf:ProductDynamicFields" and this does display my fields.  But I want to have more control than this and explicitly reference my dynamic fields in my template.

    In the List Template I can reference my custom field using "< % Eval" syntax but this does NOT work in my single item template.

    Please help!
  • Hello Don,

    The ecommerce module still doesn`t support custom fields from new product type to be displayed dynamically in single item settings. Please excuse us for the inconvenience.

  • I was associating documents to products and saving their guids in the back end and ended up finding a way to use my custom fields in the product details template 

    You'll need to map a product details template to an external file so you can run code in the code behind. Do that by following Josh Morale's post here, I used option one: http://www.sitefinity.com/blogs/joshmorales/posts/11-05-10/mapping_external_templates_for_sitefinity_4_widgets.aspx

    Once you are able to get that working, you can query your custom fields using an OpenAccess extension method, this is how I got my document urls:

    using Telerik.OpenAccess;
     
    CatalogManager catalogManager = CatalogManager.GetManager();
    Product _product = catalogManager.GetProducts().Where(p => p.Title == productTitle.Text).FirstOrDefault();
     
    string strGuid = _product.FieldValue<string>("YourCustomFieldName");
     
    string documentLink = "#";
     
    documentLink = App.WorkWith().Document(new Guid(strGuid.Trim())).Get().Url;

    Hope that helps someone.

  • Hi

    Has this moved on in the newer versions of SF, and possible without the customisation?

    Thanks

    Cheers
