Add custom option to quote item programmatically magento


Magento provides a capability for adding options that aren’t product attributes or product custom options. They are set on the product and quote items with the option code additional_options.

There are two steps you need to take, each can be handled via an event observer. If you want the additional options to carry through reordering, you will need also observe a third event.

Add options to quote item

The first step is to add the event observer to set the additional options on the loaded product before it is added to the cart. One option is to use the catalog_product_load_after event.

<catalog_product_load_after>
    <observers>
        <extra_options>
            <type>model</type>
            <class>extra_options/observer</class>
            <method>catalogProductLoadAfter</method>
        </extra_options>
    </observers>
</catalog_product_load_after>

In the event observer you can add additional checks the requested page is indeed an add to cart action. The main point of this observer method is to add the selection of your special options to the additional_options option on the product model.
public function catalogProductLoadAfter(Varien_Event_Observer $observer)
{
    // set the additional options on the product
    $action = Mage::app()->getFrontController()->getAction();
    if ($action->getFullActionName() == 'checkout_cart_add')
    {
        // assuming you are posting your custom form values in an array called extra_options...
        if ($options = $action->getRequest()->getParam('extra_options'))
        {
            $product = $observer->getProduct();

            // add to the additional options array
            $additionalOptions = array();
            if ($additionalOption = $product->getCustomOption('additional_options'))
            {
                $additionalOptions = (array) unserialize($additionalOption->getValue());
            }
            foreach ($options as $key => $value)
            {
                $additionalOptions[] = array(
                    'label' => $key,
                    'value' => $value,
                );
            }
            // add the additional options array with the option code additional_options
            $observer->getProduct()
                ->addCustomOption('additional_options', serialize($additionalOptions));
        }
    }
}

The additional options will be moved from the product to the quote item automatically. With this observer in place, your options will appear in the cart and the checkout review.

Add options to order item

In order to have them persist, one additional observer is needed (only since Magento 1.5).

 

<sales_convert_quote_item_to_order_item>
    <observers>
        <extra_options>
            <type>model</type>
            <class>extra_options/observer</class>
            <method>salesConvertQuoteItemToOrderItem</method>
        </extra_options>
    </observers>
</sales_convert_quote_item_to_order_item>
Here we move the option from the quote item to the order item.

public function salesConvertQuoteItemToOrderItem(Varien_Event_Observer $observer)
{
    $quoteItem = $observer->getItem();
    if ($additionalOptions = $quoteItem->getOptionByCode('additional_options')) {
        $orderItem = $observer->getOrderItem();
        $options = $orderItem->getProductOptions();
        $options['additional_options'] = unserialize($additionalOptions->getValue());
        $orderItem->setProductOptions($options);
    }
}

From this point on the additional options will be visible in the customer order history in the frontend and the order emails, as well as in the admin interface order view, invoices, shipments, creditmemos and PDFs.

Add support for reorders

In order to carry the oprions over to the new order during a reorder, you need to take care to copy them over. Here is one possibility using the checkout_cart_product_add_after event.

<checkout_cart_product_add_after>
    <observers>
        <extra_options>
            <type>singleton</type>
            <class>extra_options/observer</class>
            <method>checkoutCartProductAddAfter</method>
        </extra_options>
    </observers>
</checkout_cart_product_add_after>

The parsing of the extra options and building the additional options array should be moved into a separate function to avoid code duplication, but for this example I’ll leave the required logic for each method in place for clarity.

public function checkoutCartProductAddAfter(Varien_Event_Observer $observer)
{
    $action = Mage::app()->getFrontController()->getAction();
    if ($action->getFullActionName() == 'sales_order_reorder')
    {
        $item = $observer->getQuoteItem();
        $buyInfo = $item->getBuyRequest();
        if ($options = $buyInfo->getExtraOptions())
        {
            $additionalOptions = array();
            if ($additionalOption = $item->getOptionByCode('additional_options'))
            {
                $additionalOptions = (array) unserialize($additionalOption->getValue());
            }
            foreach ($options as $key => $value)
            {
                $additionalOptions[] = array(
                    'label' => $key,
                    'value' => $value,
                );
            }
            $item->addOption(array(
                'code' => 'additional_options',
                'value' => serialize($additionalOptions)
            ));
        }
    }
}

Translation:

There is no mechanism in place to translate these option labels or values. Here are a few ideas that might be useful in that regard.

In a quote_item_load_after event observer, get the additional options array and set $option['print_value'] = $helper->__($option['value']);. If print_value is set, Magento will use that for rendering the display.
The same can be done with order items.

There is no such thing as a print_label, but you could set a custom index (label_source maybe) and set the label on the fly using that as the source, e.g. $option['label'] = $helper->__($option['label_source']);.

Beyond that you would probably have to resort to modifying the templates (grep for getItemOptions()), or overriding the block classes (grep additional_options).

    }

How To Set Dynamic Variable in CMS Content


public function setVariableforCMSBlock($BlockId,$VariableArray=""){

	if(!$blockId){
		return;
	}
	$block = Mage::getModel('cms/block')
		->setStoreId(Mage::app()->getStore()->getId())
		->load($blockId);
	$filter = Mage::getModel('cms/template_filter');
	$filter->setVariables($array);
	return $filter->filter($block->getContent());
	
}

use of function 
$test['test1'] = 'test1';
$test['test2'] = 'test2';

Mage::helper('example')->setVariableforCMSBlock('testCmsBlockId',$test);

you can set content in cms block like

Hello this is {{var test1}} and this is another {{var test2}}

OUTPUT :: Hello this is test1 and this is another test2

Add custom variable to cms block in magento

Import large mysql database using mysql command prompt


Click your wamp server icon then look for MYSQL > MSQL Console then run it.
console

If you dont have password, just hit enter and type :

mysql> use database_name;
mysql> source location_of_your_file;
If you have password, you will promt to enter a password. Enter you password first then type:

mysql> use database_name;
mysql> source location_of_your_file;
location_of_your_file should look like C:/mydb.sql

for desktop my location is like :: C:/Users/Zaheer/Desktop/db.sql/db.sql
so the command is mysql>source C:/Users/Zaheer/Desktop/db.sql/db.sql;

This kind of importing sql dump is very helpful for BIG SQL FILE.

I copied my file mydb.sq to directory C: .It should be capital C: in order to run

and that’s it.

Redirect on specif page on 404 error


Create one front controller or take it from your current module.
I have indexcontroller from my module.add below code on it.

public function sitemapredirectAction(){
        $configValue = Mage::getStoreConfig(
                   'web/default/cms_no_route',
                   Mage::app()->getStore()
               ); 
$location = Mage::getUrl($configValue );
       header("HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently"); 
header("Location:$location");exit;
         //Mage::app()->getFrontController()->getResponse()->setRedirect(Mage::getUrl($configValue ));
    }

and then set up from backend.

Create nationality dropdown as custom address attriubte


Create nationality dropdown as custom address attriubte and display it on shipping and billing on onepage checkout.

Download Module

Just download the module and install it.Then after you have to write some code for display nationality select box on billing and shipping step.

Open your billing and shipping phtml and write below code.

<div class="field">
                    <?php $countryList = Mage::getModel('adminhtml/system_config_source_country')->toOptionArray();
                    ?>
                        <label for="billing:nationality" class="required"><em>*</em><?php echo $this->__('Nationality') ?></label>
                        <div class="input-box">
                            <?php if (count($countryList) > 0): ?>  
							<select name="billing[nationality]" class="validate-select"  id="billing:nationality">  
							<?php foreach($countryList as $_country): ?>  
							<option value="<?php echo $_country['value'] ?>">  
							<?php echo $_country['label'] ?>  
							</option>  
							<?php endforeach; ?>  
							</select>  
							<?php endif; ?>
                        </div>
                    </div>

Next I made some changes to the address templates in Magento Admin. Go to System→Configurations→Customers→Customer Configurations→Address Templates

and add nationality same like country field.
