I am trying to figure out how to add the Product Template field to the product display grid when viewing categories of products. On my old site using AC Gold, we used the Product Template to track product inventory status (shows as either In Stock or Out Of Stock). This may not be entirely ideal but works for our setup. I figured out how to add it when viewing each product individually, but I would also like it to display when viewing products in the Category grid like our old site did as well. TIA for any assistance!

You need to customize the product item display view that is used for the product listing.

As a workaround:
Open the file \Website\Views\Shared\_ProductItemDisplay.cshtml
Try adding the following line of code.

Code:
@Html.Action("ProductCustomFieldsDialog", new { parameters = new ProductCustomFieldsDialogParams() { ProductId = Model.Id } })

Thank you for your reply. Is there a specific place in that file where that line of code should go? Or just at the bottom of the file?

Thank you!

You can add this line where you want to display the product template values.

I have a bug to report with this. While the method worked, I have a problem now when categories are clicked under the Browse Store link. Here is the error it throws:

A public action method 'ProductCustomFieldsDialog' was not found on controller 'AbleCommerce.Controllers.CategoryController'.

How can I fix this please?

Update the code from

Code:
@Html.Action("ProductCustomFieldsDialog", new { parameters = new ProductCustomFieldsDialogParams() { ProductId = Model.Id } })


to

Code:
@Html.Action("ProductCustomFieldsDialog", "Product", new { parameters = new ProductCustomFieldsDialogParams() { ProductId = Model.Id } })
