Show Winners Full Name

Postby zedimus » Wed Dec 10, 2008 10:26 am

I have been trying to show the winners Full Name in the Reports section and on the product page for the admin, i cant get them to work, I just want one to work.

On the product page i have tryed this
Code: Select all
{if isAdmin()}The high bidder is {$record->val('firstname')}{/if}

that just give me a blank space after The high bidder is

and i have tryed this

Code: Select all
{if isAdmin()}The high bidder is {$users->val('firstname')}{/if}


and that just breaks the site template and gives me a sql error.

Do i have to add something else to another file so it knows to take the first and last name or the full name from the high bidder.?

Thanks
David

Hi Zedimus,

Where were you trying to add this code? If it was in the templates/view_product.html template, then you're on the right track. You just need to notice that the product record is stored in a variable called $product in that template and not $record.

Now in order to get the winner's full name you'll also need to add a calculated field in the products delegate class to return the full name. Something like:

Code: Select all
function field__winner_full_name(&$record){
    $winner = df_get_record('users', array('username'=>'='.$record->val('high_bidder')));
    if ( !$winner ) return null;
    return $winner->val('firstname').' '.$winner->val('lastname');
}


(assuming that the firstname and lastname columns exist in the users table).

Then in your template you would be able to use this field:

Code: Select all
{$product->val('winner_full_name')}
