Hi. I am going to re-phrase a question I asked a few days ago. Is there a way to stay on the onepage Checkout when the 'Place Order' button is pressed? Currently I am calling a controller at this point, and get re-directed to the controller page. Should I be using a controller or another method if I want to perform some tasks but stay in the final onepage Checkout page? Thanks for any pointers in advance as I am new to Magento.
You need to either Ajax the data to your controller, or forward them back to the checkout procedure from your controller.
Typically, there is a better way to accomplish what you want than changing the flow of checkout. Can you provide more information on what your custom controller does?
We meet again!
I think we shouldn't stay on the checkout One page. I have two suggestions for you:
1. Currently, I use rwd package, you find:
review = new Review('<?php echo $this->getUrl('checkout/onepage/saveOrder', array('form_key' => Mage::getSingleton('core/session')->getFormKey())) ?>', '<?php echo $this->getUrl('checkout/onepage/success') ?>', $('checkout-agreements'));
You can change success redirect URL: <?php echo $this->getUrl('checkout/onepage/success') ?> to your controller.
2. This solution is better for us. We use Observer to open our doors. After placing an order successful, Magento triggers an Event (sales_order_place_after), you can catch this event and then inject your code into this workflow.
For example, in your config.xml:
In your Model Observer:
public function AfterPlaceOrder($observer)
$order = $observer->getEvent()->getOrder();
//Do something after placing order successful.
Hope my suggestion is useful for you.
Yes - it displays a payment payment lightbox, so it does some processing such as creating a session ID with the payment gateway and then displays a lightbox for the customer to enter the payment details. It works fine, but I would like the order page to be the background instead of a new Magento page. Is there an easy way to re-direct back to the checkout before I display the lightbox or is there major code changes required? Thanks again.
