This two-part series will look at the development of Magento checkout to meet the requirements of a client using Enterprise 1.13. We won’t deal with the basics of setting up modules or extending classes. I’ve an earlier series on that. Here, I want to focus on checkout’s end-to-end inner workings — a post I’ve wanted to do for some time.
This is a follow-on post to a recent series where I provided administrators with an option to add a despatch date in Admin, present this in the order grid and include it in an order update email. In this post, we want to ‘ajaxify’ the user experience. We’ll update the database with the new date without having to refresh the order view page.
