How to make a chart item unique and still possible to edit

Hi,

I would need help to make a product unique in the chopping chart.

The senario is that our customers can buy products that will be packaged
in specific lengths. So if they buy 5 meters of one SKU and later another 3 meters
of the same SKU I would like it to be two different items in the chart instead
of one that is 8 times the SKU.

Anyone that have done anything like this?

I have some ideas of making it unique with an hidden attribute but don’t know how to realize it.

I’m using magento 1.3.2.4

Thanks

i am think you are using the qty field for meter, that is wrong.. qty is for pieces…

you should use custom options!

admin: catalog, manage products, select the product you want.. then click custom options at the left.. add a new one..
title: Length
Type: Dropdown
Required: Yes

Then set up the options… by clicking the ‘new row’
Title: 3 meter
Price: 300
Type: precent

clicking the ‘new row’ again:
Title: 5 meter
Price: 500
Type: precent

in the front-end the user have to give also the length and pieces…

if you want the customer to let input any numbers then you should use text instead of dropdown…
in that case you have to hard code some files, to change the price…

Thanks!

That really helped me out smile

Is there anyone that have code examples on how to make with a text field and let the customer
add e.g. the length them self with input validation of course?

I’ve looked for community extension but without luck.

Thanks
