Custom fields always show as radio buttons and not dropdown
« on: August 21, 2012, 15:55:59 pm »
Hi everybody,

No matter what I do with custom fields they always show as a radio button in the cart area. I've tried this plugin:

http://www.kaizenmediaworks.com/virtuemart-2-0-custom-field-dropbox-plugin

I've tried using cart variants. I have no clue why they keep showing as radio buttons instead of showing in a dropdown. I attached a screenshot of what it looks like and what my backend looks like.

As you can see I have like 10 custom fields in there and all that shows up in the cart area is Savvy Parent in a radio button. Im trying to get a dropdown to show of options to select from. Any ideas on why this is happening? I have these custom fields set as cart attributes too.

Thanks

This is how VM displays the cart variant custom fields.

To use the plugin you have downloaded you have to create new cf, setting as type this plugin

I did do this and I used the custom field > plugin > vm dropbox. I set it up exactly as site described and they still showed as radio buttons.

I have the Exact opposite problem.  Using VirtueMart 2.10.

I would loke to have radio buttons for one of my custom fields (Is list is set to NO). But it always shows up like a dropdown.

Where do we tell VirtueMart to display a Custom Field as Drop down or Roadio Button

I am actually using Kaizen Dropbox for another Custom Field and it works nicely.  Still cant' find how to display radio buttons.  See attached images.

Thank you very much. This is a very very great tool! I think you should need to cantact with the VM develeopers because they must to implement this for the core package. :)
