Hi,

I’m trying to add a new product type, which will act like a group of configurable products… I am first trying to add the product type to the lists of the admin, but nothing seems to appear… Here is what i have done :

1:  Edit /app/code/core/Mage/Catalog/Model/Product/Type.php to add a constant TYPE_SILHOUETTE
2: Edit /app/code/core/Mage/Catalog/Product/Type/Silhouette.php (this far, it is just a copy of Configurable.php)
3: Add this to the global/catalog/product/type (in /app/code/core/Mage/Catalog/etc/config.xml

<silhouette translate="label" module="silhouette">
<
label>Silouhette</label>
<
model>catalog/product_type_silhouette</model>
</
silhouette>

OK, this makes appear the “Silhouette” option in the option list.

Now, i tried to make this as a local module.

I created the (1) and (2) and make them inherit from the original file. The config.xml files contains :

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config>
    <
modules>
        <
MyCompany_Silhouette>
            <
version>1.0.0</version>
        </
MyCompany_Silhouette>
    </
modules>
    <global>
        <
catalog>
            <
product>
                <
type>
                       <
silhouette translate="label" module="silhouette">
                        <
label>Silouhette</label>
                        <
model>catalog/product_type_silhouette</model>
                    </
silhouette>
                </
type>
            </
product>
        </
catalog>
        <
models>
            <
catalog>
                <
rewrite>
                    <
product_type>MyCompany_Silhouette_Model_Product_Type</product_type>
                    <
product_type_silhouette>MyCompany_Silhouette_Model_Product_Type_Silhouette</product_type_silhouette>
                </
rewrite>
            </
catalog>
        <
models>
    </global>
</
config>

Here, the option group is not containing the “SILHOUETTE” option, and my models don’t seem to be executed… Does somebody have an idea on that ?

Regards,
A.
