Hi Staff,


Thanks For your reply.

I already viewed that article. But I want to do some operations in admin panel dynamically as same as when we try to add or remove zones in for plugin.I am trying to create a form in my plugin and want to submit and update the page using jquery and ajax.In my ajax file, it needs some configuration files included it.this is what am trying.

I have a form like add zone.

if i click that, it will open a form and when i save, it has to add in admin panel and also insert in db as well. for inserting into db, I need some files to be included in my ajax file.

I am new to cubecart. I don't know much about core ffiles. please help me.

You can still do this with a plugin. Honestly its the best way as the store can be upgraded to the latest version without affecting the plugin. The route you are trying to take right now is complex and has a lot of room for errors. 


You'll see that there are a number of plugin hooks already. If you need to add more hooks to the core code of CubeCart please feel free, lets us know what ones you have added and so long as they are not in code loops we will add them to the next release.

Okay. can you give me a little example.


I have a form in plugin, and i want to submit that to database.I don't know how to do this? so only I tried to do this using ajax. If you give me a example code to submit in plugin form itself and i will understand easily. I don't know much about hooks also, please guide me.

Its submitted from admin panel only. For example, I am going to provide users to enter some text in products (if am selling CAP means, I provide option to users to enter text in front end).In front end I have some limitations, user has to enter only limited char and based on that price also get varies. to configure all this in front end, i need a form should be submitted by admin in admin panel.

Ok in that case its all explained here: 



It explains how to add an extra item to the navigation menu and get it loading a custom section in the admin CP. Why don't you use the example code and adapt it to your needs?

Its giving a idea about, developing a simple plugin.I read this article, based on this only am developing.but in this article, they didn't mention about submitting a form from tpl file.In the example visitor status plugin, the have textboxes and that submitted to database. but that data's are stored in configuration table.I want that form details should stored in custom tables.Tell me where can I able to get the post values in that form? I am asking about which file I need to edit and which hook I have to use? please guide me. Its little bit complicated.

I want to add a form in my plugin tpl file like this,




It should added to database and also dynamically added in that plugin tpl file as well...
