NopCommerce customization - Events

Hello friends,


this post will be about NopCommerce Events and how to react on them. I will show how to react to the Order Placed Event.

For that we need to add our own class and inherit IConsumer<OrderPlacedEvent> so NopCommerce would automatically use it, 

here is the code:

namespace Nop.Plugin.MyProductFeeder
{
    public class MyOrderPlacedEvent : IConsumer<OrderPlacedEvent>
    {
        private readonly IPluginFinder _pluginFinder;
        private readonly IOrderService _orderService;
        private readonly IStoreContext _storeContext;

        private readonly Nop.Services.Common.IGenericAttributeService _genericAttributeService;

        public MyOrderPlacedEvent(
IPluginFinder pluginFinder, IOrderService orderService, IStoreContext storeContext, Nop.Services.Common.IGenericAttributeService genericAttributeService) { this._pluginFinder = pluginFinder; this._orderService = orderService; this._storeContext = storeContext; this._genericAttributeService = genericAttributeService; } /// <summary> /// Handles the event. /// </summary> /// <param name="eventMessage">The event message.</param> public void HandleEvent(OrderPlacedEvent eventMessage) { eventMessage.Order.OrderStatus = OrderStatus.Pending; eventMessage.Order.OrderNotes.Add(new OrderNote() { CreatedOnUtc = DateTime.UtcNow, DisplayToCustomer = true, Note = "Please, confirm your order by email!" }); _orderService.UpdateOrder(eventMessage.Order); } } }

So my main idea was to force user to confirm order by email with a unique link in it.

Not too complex but may not be so obvious for someone.


Thank you and see you :)

NopCommerce customization - Price Calculation Service

Hello friends,

today I will show a Price Calculation Service implementation for NopCommerce plugin.

We will need a class that inherits Nop.Services.Catalog.PriceCalculationService and single method for price calculation.

Here is the code:

    public class MyPriceCalc:Nop.Services.Catalog.PriceCalculationService
    {
        #region Fields

        private readonly CatalogSettings _catalogSettings;
        private readonly CurrencySettings _currencySettings;
        private readonly ICategoryService _categoryService;
        private readonly ICurrencyService _currencyService;
        private readonly IDiscountService _discountService;
        private readonly IManufacturerService _manufacturerService;
        private readonly IProductAttributeParser _productAttributeParser;
        private readonly IProductService _productService;
        private readonly IStaticCacheManager _cacheManager;
        private readonly IStoreContext _storeContext;
        private readonly IWorkContext _workContext;
        private readonly ShoppingCartSettings _shoppingCartSettings;

        private readonly IGenericAttributeService _genericAttributeService;
        private readonly Nop.Services.Shipping.Date.IDateRangeService _dateRangeService;

        #endregion

        #region Ctor

        public MyPriceCalc(CatalogSettings catalogSettings,
            CurrencySettings currencySettings,
            ICategoryService categoryService,
            ICurrencyService currencyService,
            IDiscountService discountService,
            IManufacturerService manufacturerService,
            IProductAttributeParser productAttributeParser,
            IProductService productService,
            IStaticCacheManager cacheManager,
            IStoreContext storeContext,
            IWorkContext workContext,
            ShoppingCartSettings shoppingCartSettings,
            IGenericAttributeService genericAttributeService,
            Nop.Services.Shipping.Date.IDateRangeService dateRangeService) :base(catalogSettings,
            currencySettings,
            categoryService,
            currencyService,
            discountService,

            shoppingCartSettings)
        {
            this._catalogSettings = catalogSettings;
            this._currencySettings = currencySettings;
            this._categoryService = categoryService;
            this._currencyService = currencyService;
            this._discountService = discountService;
            this._manufacturerService = manufacturerService;
            this._productAttributeParser = productAttributeParser;
            this._productService = productService;
            this._cacheManager = cacheManager;
            this._storeContext = storeContext;
            this._workContext = workContext;
            this._shoppingCartSettings = shoppingCartSettings;

            this._genericAttributeService = genericAttributeService;
            this._dateRangeService = dateRangeService;
        }

        #endregion

        public override decimal GetFinalPrice(Product product,
            Customer customer,
            decimal? overriddenProductPrice,
            decimal additionalCharge,
            bool includeDiscounts,
            int quantity,
            DateTime? rentalStartDate,
            DateTime? rentalEndDate,
            out decimal discountAmount,
            out List<DiscountForCaching> appliedDiscounts)
        {
            //get base price in case anything will go wrong in your logic
            decimal fprice = base.GetFinalPrice(product,
            customer,
            overriddenProductPrice,
            additionalCharge,
            includeDiscounts,
            quantity,
            rentalStartDate,
            rentalEndDate,
            out discountAmount,
            out appliedDiscounts);

            if (_storeContext.CurrentStore.Id == 3/*your store id in multiple-store configuration*/)
            {
                try
                {
                    //... your price calculation logic
                }
                catch (Exception ex)
                {
                    var logger = EngineContext.Current.Resolve<Nop.Services.Logging.ILogger>();
                    logger.Error(ex.Message, ex, customer);
                }
            }

            return fprice;
        }
    }

So, this class and the single method will be called every time any product requested (on home page, in any list, on product details page, etc.)

Firstly I call base method just in case anything will go wrong in my own logic and return the base price.

After you published this plugin your calculation class will picked up by NopCommerce immediately.

NopCommerce customization - Message Token

Hello friends,


this time I will show how to add your own message tokens to NopCommerce. For that you need two things: create a message token class and register it with dependencyregistrar.

So here is the code:

    public class FeederOT : IDependencyRegistrar
    {
        public int Order => 1000;

        public void Register(ContainerBuilder builder, ITypeFinder typeFinder, NopConfig config)

            base.AddOrderTokens(tokens, order, languageId, vendorId);
        }
    }


So, you create your own class, inherit it from the Nop.Services.Messages.MessageTokenProvider and define your own token inside of the AddOrderTokens method.

After that you register it with the IDependencyRegistrar.


Now you can use your own tokens inside of message templates.

NopCommerce customization - Plugin

Hello friends,


I'm going to share my experience in NopCommerce customization. I will write about Plugins, Scheduled tasks, Events, Services, and everything you need to know to extend your NopCommerce shop.

This first post will be about NopCommerce plugin for NopCommerce 4.1.

So, to start writing your own plugin for NopCommerce you need to start from the help page of the official documentation

Steps described there are required to start writing your plugin. After that you will just extend it to meet your requirements and here are some useful things:

- Main Plugin class declaration:

public class Feeder : BasePlugin, IMiscPlugin, IAdminMenuPlugin

- Declare all classes you need for work:

public Feeder(IActionContextAccessor actionContextAccessor,
            IDiscountService discountService,
            ILocalizationService localizationService,
            ISettingService settingService,
            IUrlHelperFactory urlHelperFactory,
            IWebHelper webHelper,
            IScheduleTaskService scheduleTaskService)
        {
            this._actionContextAccessor = actionContextAccessor;
            this._discountService = discountService;
            this._localizationService = localizationService;
            this._settingService = settingService;
            this._urlHelperFactory = urlHelperFactory;
            this._webHelper = webHelper;

            this._scheduleTaskService = scheduleTaskService;
        }

- Declare base methods:

        public override string GetConfigurationPageUrl()
        {
            return $"{_webHelper.GetStoreLocation()}Admin/ProductFeederMPlug/Configure";
        }

        public string GetConfigurationUrl(int discountId, int? discountRequirementId)
        {
            return $"{_webHelper.GetStoreLocation()}Admin/ProductFeederMPlug/Configure";
}

- Adding menu item to the admin menu:

        public void ManageSiteMap(SiteMapNode rootNode)
        {
            var menuItem = new SiteMapNode()
            {
                SystemName = "Product Feeder MPlug",
                Title = "Product Feeder MPlug",
ControllerName = "ProductFeederMPlug",
ActionName = "Setup", Visible = true, IconClass = "fa fa-dot-circle-o", RouteValues = new RouteValueDictionary() { { "area", Web.Framework.AreaNames.Admin } }, }; var pluginNode = rootNode.ChildNodes.FirstOrDefault(x => x.SystemName == "Configuration"); if (pluginNode != null) pluginNode.ChildNodes.Add(menuItem); else rootNode.ChildNodes.Add(menuItem); }

-Installation method:

        public override void Install()
        {
            var task = _scheduleTaskService.GetTaskByType(Services.UpdateStoreTask.TypeName);
            if (task == null)
            {
                _scheduleTaskService.InsertTask(new Core.Domain.Tasks.ScheduleTask()
                {
                    Type = Services.UpdateStoreTask.TypeName,
                    Enabled = true,
                    Name = "MPlug Product Synchronizer",
                    Seconds = 60 * 10,
                    StopOnError = false
                });
            }
            else
            {
                task.Enabled = true;
                task.Seconds = 60 * 10;
                task.StopOnError = false;
                _scheduleTaskService.UpdateTask(task);
            }

            task = _scheduleTaskService.GetTaskByType(Services.UpdateOrderStateTask.TypeName);
            if (task == null)
            {
                _scheduleTaskService.InsertTask(new Core.Domain.Tasks.ScheduleTask()
                {
                    Type = Services.UpdateOrderStateTask.TypeName,
                    Enabled = true,
                    Name = "MPlug Order State Tracker",
Seconds = 60 * 10, StopOnError = false }); } else { task.Enabled = true; task.Seconds = 60 * 15; task.StopOnError = false; _scheduleTaskService.UpdateTask(task); } base.Install(); }

- Uninstalling:

        public override void Uninstall()
        {
            //do whatever you need to uninstall your plugin
            base.Uninstall();
        }


- Adding your own controller - Inherit your plugin controller from the BasePluginController class:

public class ProductFeederMPlugController: BasePluginController

- Declaring views:

        [AuthorizeAdmin]
        [Area(AreaNames.Admin)]
        public IActionResult Configure()
        {
            if (!_permissionService.Authorize(StandardPermissionProvider.AccessAdminPanel))
                return AccessDeniedView();

            return View("~/Plugins/ProductFeeder.MPlug/Views/Configure.cshtml");
        }

        [AuthorizeAdmin]
        [Area(AreaNames.Admin)]
        public IActionResult Setup()
        {
            if (!_permissionService.Authorize(StandardPermissionProvider.AccessAdminPanel))
                return AccessDeniedView();

            return View("~/Plugins/ProductFeeder.MPlug/Views/Setup.cshtml");
}

- Store scope detecting:

var storeScope = _storeContext.ActiveStoreScopeConfiguration;

- Store temporary information during session:

_cache.Set<string>("Progress", progress, TimeSpan.FromMinutes(30));

- Declare all instances of classes you need as constructor parameters and store them into fields:

public ProductFeederController(ICustomerService customerService, 
            Nop.Services.Shipping.Date.IDateRangeService dateRangeService,
            ILocalizationService localizationService,
            IPermissionService permissionService,
            ISettingService settingService,
            IStoreContext storeContext,
            Nop.Services.Catalog.ICategoryService categoryService,
            Nop.Services.Catalog.IManufacturerService manufacturerService,
            Nop.Services.Catalog.IProductService productService,
            Nop.Services.Catalog.IProductAttributeService productAttributeService,
            Nop.Services.Catalog.ISpecificationAttributeService specificationAttributeService,
            IGenericAttributeService genericAttributeService,
            Core.Infrastructure.INopFileProvider fileProvider,
            Nop.Services.Media.IPictureService pictureService,
            Nop.Services.Stores.IStoreMappingService storeMappingService,
            Nop.Services.Catalog.IProductTagService productTagService,
            Nop.Services.Seo.IUrlRecordService urlRecordService,
            Microsoft.Extensions.Caching.Memory.IMemoryCache cache)
        {
            this._dateRangeService = dateRangeService;
            this._customerService = customerService;
            this._localizationService = localizationService;
            this._permissionService = permissionService;
            this._settingService = settingService;
            this._storeContext = storeContext;
            this._categoryService = categoryService;
            this._manufacturerService = manufacturerService;
            this._productService = productService;
            this._productAttributeService = productAttributeService;
            this._specificationAttributeService = specificationAttributeService;
            this._genericAttributeService = genericAttributeService;
            this._fileProvider = fileProvider;
            this._pictureService = pictureService;
            this._storeMappingService = storeMappingService;
            this._productTagService = productTagService;
            this._urlRecordService = urlRecordService;
            this._cache = cache;
        }

- Save needed data into settings (DB table):

_settingService.SetSetting<string>("Categories", Newtonsoft.Json.JsonConvert.SerializeObject(finalcategories, Newtonsoft.Json.Formatting.None,
                        new Newtonsoft.Json.JsonSerializerSettings()
                        {
                            ReferenceLoopHandling = Newtonsoft.Json.ReferenceLoopHandling.Ignore
                        }), storeScope, true);

- To avoid complexity of existing model extending - use generic attributes:

_genericAttributeService.SaveAttribute<int>(manuf, Feeder.gAttrID, manuid);

- Add store mapping for entities (in this case for Manufacturer):

_storeMappingService.InsertStoreMapping<Core.Domain.Catalog.Manufacturer>(manuf, storeScope);

- Use repositories to speed-up it work with DB and if you do not need all other logic and events to be occured (use with caution and be aware of it):

var productRepository = Core.Infrastructure.EngineContext.Current.Resolve<Core.Data.IRepository<Core.Domain.Catalog.Product>>();

- Adding a manufacturer:

manuf = new Core.Domain.Catalog.Manufacturer()
{
     Name = product.brandName,
     CreatedOnUtc = DateTime.UtcNow,
     ManufacturerTemplateId = 1,
     MetaDescription = product.brandName,
     MetaKeywords = product.brandName,
     MetaTitle = product.brandName,
     PageSize = 20,
     Published = true,
     UpdatedOnUtc = DateTime.UtcNow
};
_manufacturerService.InsertManufacturer(manuf);
_storeMappingService.InsertStoreMapping<Core.Domain.Catalog.Manufacturer>(manuf, storeScope);

- Adding date ranges / delivery dates:

daterange = new Core.Domain.Shipping.DeliveryDate()
{
      Name = deliveryText
};
_dateRangeService.InsertDeliveryDate(daterange);

- Adding product:

pro = new Core.Domain.Catalog.Product()
{
     ProductType = Core.Domain.Catalog.ProductType.SimpleProduct,
     VisibleIndividually = true,
     Sku = product.article,
     IsShipEnabled = true,
     MetaDescription = shortd,
     MetaKeywords = shortd,
     MetaTitle = name,
     Price = price,
     ProductCost = cost,
     AdditionalShippingCharge = Feeder.CalculateShipping(price),
     CreatedOnUtc = DateTime.UtcNow,
     UpdatedOnUtc = ((DateTime)product.modified).ToUniversalTime(),
     Name = name,
     ShortDescription = product.descriptionSnort,
     FullDescription = product.description,
     BackorderMode = Core.Domain.Catalog.BackorderMode.NoBackorders,
     MarkAsNew = true,
     AllowBackInStockSubscriptions = true,
     AllowCustomerReviews = true,
     Published = price != null,
     DeliveryDateId = daterange == null ? 0 : daterange.Id,
     LimitedToStores = true,
     OrderMaximumQuantity=int.MaxValue,
     OrderMinimumQuantity=1, 
     DisableBuyButton = pprice == null,
     ProductTemplateId = 1,
     ProductManufacturers =
     {
           new Core.Domain.Catalog.ProductManufacturer() { Manufacturer = manuf, Product = pro }
     }

};

productRepository.Insert(pro);

- Add pictures/images as files:

string iufn = _fileProvider.GetFileName(iurl);
if (!pro.ProductPictures.Any(a => a.Picture.SeoFilename.ToLowerInvariant() == iufn.ToLowerInvariant()))
{
      Core.Domain.Media.Picture propic;
      _pictureService.StoreInDb = false;
      propic = _pictureService.InsertPicture(data.Item2, "image/jpeg", iufn, pro.Name, pro.Name, true);

      _productService.InsertProductPicture(new Core.Domain.Catalog.ProductPicture()
      {
            Product = pro,
            Picture = propic
      });
}

- Adding Product Attribute:

pattr = new Core.Domain.Catalog.ProductAttribute()
{
     Name = name

};

productAttributeService.InsertProductAttribute(pattr);

pro.ProductAttributeMappings.Add(new Core.Domain.Catalog.ProductAttributeMapping()
{
     AttributeControlType = Core.Domain.Catalog.AttributeControlType.ColorSquares,
     IsRequired = true,
     ProductAttribute = pattr,
     ProductAttributeValues =
     {
          new Core.Domain.Catalog.ProductAttributeValue
          {
                AttributeValueType = Core.Domain.Catalog.AttributeValueType.Simple,
                Name = val, 
                IsPreSelected = true, 
                ColorSquaresRgb=rgb
          }
     }

- Adding Product Specification Attribute:

spattr = new Core.Domain.Catalog.SpecificationAttribute
{
       Name = name
};
spAttrRepository.Insert(spattr);
spao = new Core.Domain.Catalog.SpecificationAttributeOption()
{
       Name = val,
       SpecificationAttribute = spattr
};
spOAttrRepository.Insert(spao);

pro.ProductSpecificationAttributes.Add(new Core.Domain.Catalog.ProductSpecificationAttribute()
{
       AllowFiltering = true,
       ShowOnProductPage = true,
       SpecificationAttributeOption = spao,
       AttributeType = Core.Domain.Catalog.SpecificationAttributeType.Option
});

- do not forget to update Entity (Product in this case) after all changes:

productRepository.Update(pro);

- Adding Urls/Slugs to entities:

if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(_urlRecordService.GetActiveSlug(p.Id, typeof(Core.Domain.Catalog.Product).Name, 0)))
{
     slug = _urlRecordService.ValidateSeName(_productService.GetProductById(p.Id), p.Name, p.Name, true);
     _urlRecordService.InsertUrlRecord(new Core.Domain.Seo.UrlRecord
     {
           EntityId = p.Id,
           EntityName = typeof(Core.Domain.Catalog.Product).Name,
           LanguageId = 0,
           IsActive = true,
           Slug = slug
     });
}
