I am starting to setup some pages using the search applets and am having a problem.

It appears to me that the Template_Product page displays the brief description rather than the full description. At first I didn't have anything in the brief description and when I did this I didn't see anything in the description field of the shopping cart. When I put something in the brief description field I do but it doesn't show up on the search page. Is there anyway to show both of these or do I need to put the same data in both fields to get it to show up in both places.

Thanks
Ron

Whatever value gets entered as the "Full Description" will be displayed on the HTML page. Whatever value gets entered as the "Brief Description" will be used as the product's description in the shopping cart.

You can see this demonstrated by doing a search on "screws" at:

http://www.uburst.com/uShop/reference/ex_search1.html

... which uses the data file shown at:

http://www.uburst.com/uShop/classes/example_data_file1.txt

The long description field has:

Box of 50 wood screws. Stainless steel. (You can put any description you want here).

... which gets displayed on the HTML page.

The short description has:

Box of 50 wood screws.

... which is the value of the applet's description parameter.

See Section 7.3.1 in the User's Guide for more information on each field in the data files:

Thanks Bill,
I knew I should have had my second cup of coffee before I sent that. I was confusing the short description with the Product Name. For electronic components I want the same thing to show both on the html page and the cart description so I will just have to copy it into both fields.
