Commerce v1 Snippets get products

The commerce.get_products snippet is used to iterate over a list of products, based on the provided product IDs. Use get_product for getting information about a single product.

Added in v0.4. Can be paginated with pdoPage/getPage as of v1.1.

Usage

[[!commerce.get_products? 
    &products=`123, 321, 213, 231`
    &tpl=`product-item`
]]

It's possible to call this snippet both cached and uncached. The benefit of calling it uncached is that automatic sale prices are reflected in the output; but that does come at a small performance penalty.

Properties

  • &products: the IDs of the products to iterate over. This can be comma separated (123,321) or separated by two pipes (123||321) like template variables store listbox values.
  • &tpl: can be set to the name of a chunk. The product information (without prefix) will be parsed through that chunk. If not provided, the product information will be dumped to screen in a <pre>. Placeholders include all product fields, as well as [[+total_products]] and [[+idx]] (0-based).
  • &where: a JSON array containing additional conditions to filter products on. See examples below. (added in v1.1)
  • &logSql: set to 1 if you want the query that was used for fetching products to get logged to your MODX error log; useful for debugging custom &where conditions. (added in v1.1)
  • &sortby: name of a field to sort the products by. For example name or price. By default, this will use the same order as the products were provided in. (Note: due to a bug in 2.5.2, the default may not return products unless you specify a different &sortby. Update to 2.5.4.)
  • &limit: the amount of orders to show. Defaults to 0 (ignoring the limit) for backwards compatibility, set to e.g. 10 when you want to use getPage/pdoPage. (added in v1.1)
  • &offset: the amount of orders to skip at the start, used with pagination. Defaults to 0. (added in v1.1)
  • &separator: string to use to join the product records together, defaults to a newline character. (added in v0.11)

Showing product variations

If you select one or more products on a resource, you can use this snippet in your add to cart form. For example if you want to show radio boxes if there were multiple, but a hidden input if there was just one result, use something like this:

[[commerce.get_products? 
    &products=`[[+tv.products]]`
    &tpl=`products.product_option` 
]]

product_option chunk:

[[+total_products:eq=`1`:then=`
  <input type="hidden" name="product" value="[[+id]]">
`:else=`
  <label>
    <input type="radio" name="product" value="[[+id]]" [[+idx:eq=`0`:then=`checked="checked"`:else=``]]>
    [[+name]] ([[+price_formatted]])
  </label>
`]]

Additional conditions

The &where property lets you add additional conditions for the products to be returned. This property needs to contain valid JSON.

For example, only showing products that are in stock:

[[commerce.get_products? 
    &products=`[[+tv.products]]`
    &tpl=`products.product_option` 
    &where=`{"stock:>=":1}`
]]

Use &logSql to see the final query in your MODX error log.
