Registering a session variable

Recommended Posts

I am trying to register and recall later a session variable. Below it the basic code. Looks like it is pretty straight forward but there is no value for $wa_dest_tax_rate['rate'] on pages used later. Obviously I am doing something wrong.

 

tep_session_register('wa_dest_tax_rate');

 

$wa_dest_tax_rate['rate']='9';

$wa_dest_tax_rate['resultcode']='0';

 

 

Thank you,

I also tried this with the same effect:

 

$wa_dest_tax_rate = array(

'rate' => '9',

'resultcode' => '0'

);

Here is a little more info. The code in my posts above is in a function file of it's own and is called when tep_get_tax_rate is called. The array is fine at the end of the file but is lost or wiped out when it leaves the function file.

Is the code constructed like this:

 

if ( !tep_session_is_registered('wa_dest_tax_rate') ) {
 tep_session_register('wa_dest_tax_rate');
}

:unsure:

 

If you just register it programatically without checking to see if it is already there you may be wiping out the contents.

 

I've never screwed with session variables, this is just an "educated guess" on my part.

:blush:


If I suggest you edit any file(s) make a backup first - I'm not perfect and neither are you.

Thanks germ I thought that was it, but I did not add the session variable to the global declaration at the beginning of the function.

 

global $customer_zone_id, $customer_country_id, $billto, $sendto, $cart, $customer_id, $order, $wa_dest_tax_rate;

 

I didn't know it needed to be, but it does?
