Extend Customer Model

4 years ago
Hi,

I need to extend customer model so it has a relation 1 -> N   with a new model ( people ). So I also create in backoffice a section where the customer service can read and manage this data and a extend the profile view area with a new tab where the customer can enter the information.
Could you have some examples?
Thanx

You don't show what you have with the People, so i'm not sure if you need to extend it this way.

Anyway, there're some 1-N relationship in Nop like BlogPost - BlogComment.


In order to make it work you have to understand the Entity Framework, there's tons of examples on google

here is one http://www.entityframeworktutorial.net/code-first/configure-one-to-many-relationship-in-code-first.aspx

Look for these and follow the example code in blog module:

1. Domains/blogs to define the entity

2. Nop.data/Mappings/blogs to configure the relationship of the entity

3. Nop.Services/blogs make sure to register your new service in Nop.Web.Framework/DependencyRegistrar.cs in order for the system to inject the right concrete class service when you make a call the service in Presentation layer.
