How to make a color selection change the product image
« on: April 26, 2012, 19:17:28 pm »
How would I go about setting up a color drop down menu so that when I select a color for the product it changes the product image to match the selection?

I found a similar question at stack-overflow http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10124793/how-add-custom-field-with-product-image-upload-in-virtuemart and have been looking around these forums but haven't found a solution.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated,
Thank you

I wanna know i too. VirtueMart seems like a great software, but there's a lack of standard futures.

For Virtuemart 1.1.x we have attribute manager
http://breakdesigns.net/extensions/attribute-manager

We still thinking if it will have success with VM2. What do you think? Is anybody else who is interested?

Yes I'd definitely be interested. Anything would be better then nothing, I'm actually surprised this isn't a basic feature.

Does using this add-on can be to effect that change color in the drop box, for example, green (main thumbnail) to pink (small thumbnail), changed main photo thumbnails Product Details View?



Link to the demo Virtuemart with these thumbnails: http://demo.virtuemart.net/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage_default.tpl&product_id=20&category_id=11&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=6&vmcchk=1&Itemid=6

Hello and yes we would be very interested in knowing this.

Also the custom fields area seems very buggy.

Which is exactly the way to go. No need to feared. Show me your main product and give me 3 images. I do that in 5-10 minutes, depends on the speed of your server. If your images already in the media library I can do it under 5 minutes. a joke. Child products are not something strange. Just create your product. Go to the list, create a child. Add dynamic variant to the parent and done. Even there are no values in the child, everything is there, that is the trick. Then you just choose another image and thats it. You can also adjust the price.
I should fix your bug, please support the VirtueMart project and become a member

Hi do you mind to elaborate this more about this?

I have child products and do I put the image in the child product instead of the main product? or I think this is the answer.. http://forum.virtuemart.net/index.php?topic=99225.0
