Hi,
We want to create shop using magento but we have following problem. We want to sell items grouped in boxes. Client should see list of items and list of boxes. When he clicks on a box he should see list of items inside. He should have possibility to buy a box. But when he wants to buy an item in fact he buys a box with this item.

1. Is this possible in current version of magento?
2. Maybe it will be possible in version 1.1 (bundled products?)
3. If not, can I do this as magento extension?
4. In worst case - is it complicated to do this by magento code modification?

This functionality can be achieved using bundles (to a certain extent). Bundles will be available in the next release (1.1).  You will have to set up each individual product and offer it inside a bundle. The user will be able to check off which of the sub products they would like to include in the bundle. In order to get the exact display functionality you are looking for you may need some customization.

Thanks Adi!  So we wait for 1.1.  And in the meantime we try it in 1.1 alpha.
