Hi there,

We are currently developing a custom website (code) with eCommerce functionality.  We have a product item which has a viewmodel which we would like to render via a driver across three zones. The zones span the entire page - left zone, middle zone and right zone. We would like to render the product details in the middle zone with the display of the groups for the product in the left zone and all the pricing and purchase options in the right zone. This would present as a single product.

The product is made up of a number of parts - common, route, publish later etc but in particular the product part which contains all the detail, group and price information.

How would you render parts of this product in the left zone, the middle zone and the right zone? it has a unique Id.

Version is Orchard 1.2

Kind Regards

Simon

From the driver, you just need to dispatch three shapes into zones. See http://weblogs.asp.net/bleroy/archive/2011/03/26/dispatching-orchard-shapes-to-arbitrary-zones.aspx
