Length (feet and inches) ?!!

Posted: 3 years ago Quote #36393
Each product details page has some fields as:

Weight:       [lb(s)]
Length:   [inch(es)]
Width:   [inch(es)]
Height:   [inch(es)]


What is the purpose when we cannot specify length of an item per feet rather inches? and why system is not calculating base on the length I have entered here?

Can somebody give me some insight into this?

Regards.

What I'm trying to say here is that I can check a radio-button for 'feet' but then what happens?
How can I make an item to be calculated per foot ?

Please comment on this.
Thanks.

As far as I understand, measures (dimensions and weight) as defined in configuration and later in each product/variant are not used to calculate the cost of a product (such as per foot). They are used in calculating the shipping cost, accordingly with the shipment option used. For that reason they are defined all together at product/variant level :

Shipping enabled:    
Free shipping:    
Additional shipping charge:     [USD]  
Weight:     [lb(s)]  
Length:     [inch(es)]  
Width:     [inch(es)]  
Height:     [inch(es)]

Yes that stuff is just for shipping at the moment I think.
(But it would be useful for doing something similar to what you if you want to do some coding - maybe add in calculator of some description for conversions and the like)

Otherwise to sell it in lengths by the metre its just a normal product with a price.
Price displayed $10 (describe it in the text test that purchase is the quanitity in metres)
i.e. Please enter the quantitiy as the number of meters you wish to purchase in one length

i.e.$10/m (user enters 5) 5m = $50 to pay
You send them one 5m length
Does that work ?

Offcourse you could add in a new type of product attribute that did it and made it more user friendly if you wanted.

I wish it was that easy... the problem is that I need customer to enter his door size e.g. 12 1/7 x 28 7/8 and calculate it base on the door size.

I can of course create a text-box on page (using attribute) but then I need to know:

1) Where to write the code for calculation? (which module do I need to modify or code in)

2) how to distinguish between items like pen and rope?

Any hint is appreciated.
