Customize "display_cart.html" and "Missing Input" pages
Author Micky Thompson on 05-10-2001 at 14:58 (EST)
I am wishing to customize the display_cart.html and the "Missing Input" (page that displays when you fail to enter the required text of the Order Form) pages.

You can veiw the site at:

I wish to change these pages to have the fonts set to "Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"; text colors to #333333, and replace the #B3D9FF (light blue) color in the cart to #FFCC00 background of the table as you can see I did on the Order Form.

I scene where you informed another user that it could be customized in the uShopOrderButton.class but when I opened it using my Notepad and Dreamweaver HTML editor, I received a lot of unreadable text.

1. How do I edit the font, text color, table background color of the "display_cart.html" and "Missing Input" pages?

2. What program should I use to edit the ".class" files other than Notepad and an HTML editor?

Thank you for your assistance and I am highly impressed with uShop!

You don't actually edit the class files, but instead specify those options via your HTML.

To customize the fonts/colors of the HTML shopping cart (display_cart.html) page, you just need to specify the following parameters on the HTML of your uShopOrderButton applet:

< PARAM NAME="cart_font" VALUE="Verdana,Arial,Helvetica" >
< PARAM NAME="cart_font_color" VALUE="#000000" >
< PARAM NAME="cart_background_color" VALUE="#FFFFFF" >
< PARAM NAME="cart_title_color" VALUE="#B3D9FF" >
< PARAM NAME="cart_title_font_color" VALUE="#000000" >

See the uShopOrderButton reference pages in the uShop 3.0 Applet Reference:

... for more information about using/configuring those parameters via your HTML.

As for customizing the "Missing Input" page... that is actually controlled by the "missing_input" subroutine located in the file. If you are familiar with Perl, you should be able to locate that subroutine and modify it as desired.

Thank you for the rapid response and great information.

One more thing I can't figure out is how do I change the background color of the top table on the Review Cart page where "Please take a moment to review..." is written. then press "Proceed to Checkout"

How do I set the color of that top table on the Review Cart as I did on the Order Form?

Thanks again for the great service.

You're very welcome.

As for changing the color of the instruction box on that "display_cart" page.... you can do that by modifing the "template_cart.html" page which is located in your "classes" directory.

Near the top of that "template_cart.html" page you will see an "Instructions" area where the background color is set to:


So just change that value accordingly.
