Use orderline instead of product on Discount Extender

Hi,

The method DiscountValidForProduct from DiscountExtender receives the orderline product has a parameter. Although, this is not very helpfull because we can only access product information. I think it should have the orderline as a parameter instead, so we can access the orderline properties like quantity and order, and the product would be accessible too.

Thoughts?

BR, Mario

DiscountValidForProduct is for product discounts and there is no order. Say, you have a product - and you show the product on the frontpage to a user coming right now without adding anything to the cart. The discount is "Black friday, 50% off". There is no order - there is only a product and this method is to decide wether the product should be shown with a discount or not.

If you want to look at the order, you need to look at the OrderDiscount and then the extender also has a DiscountValidForOrder method that takes an Order.

Voila.

And if you choose to look at the order in DiscountValidForProduct which would be a mistake, you can go for common.context.cart - but I will not help you out of your misery when you do that :-)

Hi Nicolai,

I am not following when you say there is no order, the method DiscountValidForProduct is called with the Product property of the orderline, so there is an order (see attached image).

Hi Mario

Read my first post. DiscountValidForProduct is called from lists of products - which are not in the cart.

Hi Nicolai,

I see your logic now. Although the same method is being used for products that are in the cart too when discount is set to apply as "Product discount" - see my previous post.
Maybe a different method for that?

Hi guys,

I have a potentially similar situation like the one described here by Mario, mainly, setting up a discount orderline based on some rules.

In my case, I have some custom values on some orderlinefields and based on the values of these fields, I have to decide if I apply an orderline discount or not.

In my case, I would rather keep the orderline discount attached to the parent orderline as I can have multiple orderlines with the same product.

How do I accomplish this request?

Thank you,
Adrian

Create a discount extender by inheriting DiscountExtenderBase and implement IDiscountExtenderCalculateProductDiscount

Override DiscountValidForProduct from DiscountExtenderBase and in that method find the orderline fields in question and return true if the discount should be given.  Implement the GetDiscount from the IDiscountExtenderCalculateProductDiscount interface to take over discount calculation.

Thank you very much for the detailed guidance.

We'll try that.
