Searches, then creates a new unique shopping cart token and searches a database after substituting [cart] tags.

To create a new shopping cart token, send WebCatalog a NewCart command with the name of the template file you want to display. Whenever WebCatalog receives a NewCart command, it immediately creates a unique cart number, opens the specified file, looks for and interprets any [xxx] tags, and displays the results to the visiting web browser.

Tip: This command is obsolete and is provided for backward-compatiblity only. Instead, use an embedded [Search] context. WebCatalog's "SmartCart" feature will automatically create a shopping cart token if it detects a [cart] tag in any page you display without explicitly sending the NewCart command. So simply linking to a page with [cart] tags will work correctly.

Example (normally you would link to a URL or form containing the following information):

Try It!

Here are some other ways to send the same command:
HTML Source Description
 <a href="/WebCatalog/xx.tpl
Hyperlink to WebCatalog CGI
<form method="POST" action="/WebCatalog/xx.tpl">
<input type="hidden" name="command" value="NewCartSearch">
<input type="hidden" name="eqNamdata" value="Grant">
Form-based command to CGI
(notice you must specify a template)
