Default Save and Return

Hi Imar,

In your book ASP.NET 2.0 instantresults Chapter 9, I would like to have "Save and Finalize Later" and "Finalize Order"(exist one). How can I have this "Save and Finalize Later" function? I mean when I return to this site a few days later, I would like resume with previously saved items.
Your kind advices would be appreciated.

Hi there,

There are roughly two ways to do this:

1. Store the cart data in a database as relational data. Create a ShoppingCart table and a ShoppingCart item table and then store user and item data in these tables when the user invokes the "Save and Finalize Later" functionality.

2. Serialize the shopping cart and store it in a single column in the database. Less flexible, but a lot easier to develop. Search Google for ".NET serialization" to learn more.

Hope this helps,
