Are you working from the code created in the previous thread or are you starting over from scratch?  Do you have any approximate time table?

The code from the previous thread bears no relation to this one in the slightest. So it is not even being considered.

Timetable, none as yet. Still waiting to finish off that major project, once that is done I can concentrate on this.

Hi,

I just posted a thread asking a similar question. I am pasting my request below. Can you please let me know if this module would be able to handle my request? I want to be able to build the product as well as show the appropriate resulting image.

Quote
The client wants to be able to "configure" their product based on options chosen. For example, let's take the simple case of a table lamp. Let's say the user selects a certain style of shade and another style of base, they will see an image (will be provided beforehand) that combines the two styles.

My complete question is available at - http://forum.virtuemart.net/index.php?topic=33858.0

Thanks,
V

I'd be willing to contribute monetarily to this project. I'll outline the system I need, and you can let me know if this fits with the current vision:

I want to be able to sell individual products together as bundles.

All products that make up a "bundle" would also be their own individual products - this way all inventory information would be stored in the individual product record, and the bundle would be separate.

When building a bundle, I'd like for the customer to be able to see pictures of what they have chosen. So if there are categories A, B and C in the bundle, they'd be able to see a picture of what they have chosen in each category. Ideally I'd like this to happen dynamically (without having to go to a new page), so that the customer can try out different combinations on the fly.

I'd like to be able to set an overall discount price for the bundle. For example, a three product bundle might have a 10% discount or a flat dollar discount. A 4 product bundle might have a 20% discount or a flat dollar discount.

Hopefully that all makes sense. Let me know if I need to explain any of the above better.

Also, please let me know if this doesn't fit in with the current vision for the product builder.

Hi,

We are also very interested in something like this for our computers shop. We'll be willing to donate 30$ for a nice component that allows the configuration of custom computers in VirtueMart.

Hi,
we are a Team of experienced Joomla VM developers since earlier edition, and we are on the way to develop such a module (actually, a component) for several customers. We are PEAR experts (actually, plugin developers), so we know very well the power of these libs.


Amongst other,the module will   track of multiple configurations of a given product (attributes, prices, availability, etc.) enabling easy product comparison to determine the best product to satisfy the application requirements - before making a purchasing decision (a sort of  comparison list BEFORE the purchase), and many more, which I cannot release before the launch of the component itself.

Feature requests will be we welcomed at paudev at gmail dot com.

Well I have grown tired of waiting so I think I will end up going out and buying cs-cart which comes with a really well designed configurator.  This sucks because I have done so much work in Joomla/Virtuemart but I can't afford to wait any longer.  Good luck getting this project off the ground.

Hi,

good and stable components cannot be developed in 1 days. Anyway, I received a lot of mails from several VM users, so thank to all of you.

For every info,
