VariantCombinations on ProductViemModel returns list of empty combinations (version 9.7.2)

Hi,

Running 9.7.2, we are trying to show variant combinations for a product using a ProductViewModel with the property VariantCombinations. The list does contain the amount of variant combinations, but all properties on the VariantCombination's are set to null. Also, the list Variants is empty.

Best regards,
Roald

Hi Roald,

I can reproduce the problem related to VariantCombinations and have create a bug for that:

Bug 71093: Product view models does not correctly initialize it's own properties

Variants being empty seems like it might be related to Extended vs Simple variants? Simple variants are not part of that list. Is that what you expected?

Hi Martin,

It sounds good with the variant combinations.

What is the reason that Simple variants are not included in that list? Both types of variants serves the same purpose, the only difference being that Extended variants offer more information.

Anyhow, using Model.Variants does not fit well in our scenario, where we want to list all variants for a product sorted by variant group. In this case, it would be nice if the view model had offered a list of variant groups, e.g. Model.VariantGroups.

Our workaround so far is to retrieve the product itself with Dynamicweb.Ecommerce.Services.Products.GetProductById(...) and then calling the .VariantGroups list on the product, but this approach makes the view model redundant. Therefore, let me make a feature request for making the VariantGroups available on the view model.

Best regards,
Roald
