TOPIC: choice of variants in the category

choice of variants in the category 8 months 3 weeks ago #15778

Hi I need to be able to choose the variant in the category view as it makes the standard virtuemart template, I added this code:
<div class=""> <?php echo shopFunctionsF::renderVmSubLayout('addtocart',array('product'=>$product,'rowHeights'=>$rowsHeight[$row], 'position' => array('addtocart'))); ?></div>
in the pro-cat-grid.php sublayout and the dropdown comes out but the choice does not load the child product and the 'Add to Cart' button
example:
new.brugnolaro.com/it/filtro/58-mocassini-donna/
what's missing, how can I replicate the virtuemart standard template function?

The simple answer is: you just can't. Child Product can't be selected from the Category page, there are many things going on when you select a variant to load the child product. The price, description, title, rating, picture might be changed. AJAX request is not enough to load all those things for each product, there will be performance leaks, beside UI can be easily messed.

We have solved this dilemma by replacing "Add to Cart" button with "Choose a Variant" link. So if a product has a variant, that particular product can't be added directly from the category page, shopper has to land to product details page and make a selection (to load the child product) and add the product to cart later.
