Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,

 

I have a module which is composed of select html form. And when the form is submited I want to display the normal product list display but with a custom query, so that I can choose which products I want to display.

 

Can you lead me on a way to do this? Thanks

in your module controller you have to create function to get products from database

for example

 

$products[] = new Product(3);

$products[] = new Product(15);

where 3  and 15 are id numbers of products

then pass $products variable to smarty $this->context->smarty->assign('products'=>$products);

do it inside function where you call .tpl file in your module controller.

 

 

then in tpl file you will be able to do foreach loop on $products variable and display products you assigned to this array

Well if you check module block new products for example, homepage part, you will see

{if isset($new_products) && $new_products}
	{include file="$tpl_dir./product-list.tpl" products=$new_products class='blocknewproducts tab-pane' id='blocknewproducts'}
{else}
<ul id="blocknewproducts" class="blocknewproducts tab-pane">
	<li class="alert alert-info">{l s='No new products at this time.' mod='blocknewproducts'}</li>
</ul>
{/if}

So you see it includes product-list.tpl so it will have same display as current theme.

You will need to pass array of products and change class and id ...

Yes it is new products but I give you that as example, if you check code a bit you will find this also for search

{include file="$tpl_dir./product-list.tpl" products=$search_products}

So you need a way to populate your array and use it like this

{include file="$tpl_dir./product-list.tpl" products=$your_array}

Here is my controlelr : 

    parent::initContent();
    $products = array();
    $products = new Product(8);
    $this->context->smarty->assign(array('products'=>$products));
    $this->setTemplate('display.tpl');

Here is my tpl :

{if $products}
			<div class="content_sortPagiBar clearfix">
            	<div class="sortPagiBar clearfix gfont">
            		{include file="$tpl_dir./product-sort.tpl"}
                	{include file="$tpl_dir./nbr-product-page.tpl"}
                	{include file="$tpl_dir./product-compare.tpl"}
				</div>
			</div>
			{include file="$tpl_dir./product-list.tpl" products=$products}
			<div class="content_sortPagiBar">
				<div class="bottom-pagination-content sortPagiBar  bottom clearfix">
            		{include file="$tpl_dir./product-sort.tpl" display='viewtype'}
                    {include file="$tpl_dir./pagination.tpl" paginationId='bottom'}
				</div>
			</div>
{/if}

As you can see i'm loading only one product, have you an idea why I got like 30 blanks products on my display page ?

 

Here is the display :

You did not do what Vekia have said 

$products[] = new Product(15);

so you need to to try to add product to array. 

Also maybe try to use custom name like $my_products maybe this pick up some other $products array.

My new php :

<?php

if (!defined('_PS_VERSION_'))
  exit;
class CarBrowserDisplayModuleFrontController extends ModuleFrontController
{
  public function initContent()
  {
    parent::initContent();
    $myprod[] = new Product(8);
    $this->context->smarty->assign(array('myprod'=>$myprod));
    $this->setTemplate('display.tpl');
  }


}
?>

My new tpl :

{if $myprod}
			<div class="content_sortPagiBar clearfix">
            	<div class="sortPagiBar clearfix gfont">
            		{include file="$tpl_dir./product-sort.tpl"}
                	{include file="$tpl_dir./nbr-product-page.tpl"}
                	{include file="$tpl_dir./product-compare.tpl"}
				</div>
			</div>
			{include file="$tpl_dir./product-list.tpl" products=$myprod}
			<div class="content_sortPagiBar">
				<div class="bottom-pagination-content sortPagiBar  bottom clearfix">
            		{include file="$tpl_dir./product-sort.tpl" display='viewtype'}
                    {include file="$tpl_dir./pagination.tpl" paginationId='bottom'}
				</div>
			</div>
{/if}

And the result is worse now .. look :

The same thing happens if i rename myprod to products..

 

EDIT : I found that the problem happens in the product-list.tpl , so every $products are well loaded but when the product-list want to access a field by {$product.id} for exemple it is here where it bugs.. turns into blank page (but the $products are not null, i var_dump them already and it's not empty)

Hi, bumping this thread since I have the same problem.

 

Product-list seems to require an associative array, but when casting the object to an array, it only kinda works. How can I get an associative array from the said product?
