Advance Voucher Redemption Guide

Note

We will not be providing support for any custom coding due to the complexity.


Part 1 - Template front end

If your WHMCS product require additional user input before it is provisioned, then you will need to add additional fields manually to the template.

To do this, open the  gcVoucherRedeem.tpl template. To add a new field, look at the codes under IF statement of

{if $data["type"] == 0}

{elseif $data["type"] ==1}

You may copy and paste and use the existing code such as 

<input type="hidden" id="requiredinputtype" value="1"/>
                                <div class="col-sm-12">
                                    <div class="form-group row">
                                        <label for="requiredinput-host" class="col-sm-2 col-form-label">{$ADDONLANG.gcPage_redeem_vc_requiredinput_1}</label>
                                        <div class="col-sm-10">
                                            <input type="text" class="form-control" id="requiredinput-host" placeholder="hostname">
                                        </div>
                                    </div>
                                </div>

Change the id so that you can distinguish it during PHP processing and Javascript validation

If you need this required input to show up with Hostname input, then put in the (["requiredinput"] == 1) condition. If show up with FQDN input, then put it in the (["requiredinput"] == 2) condition. For IP input, put it in the (["requiredinput"] == 3) condition.

If you need this required input to show up for all vouchers, then you need to create a new IF condition within the ({if $data["type"] == 0}) condition, and a ({else}) condition. 

For example,

                           {if $data["data"]["properties"]["requiredinput"] == 1}
                             <input type="hidden" id="requiredinputtype" value="1"/>
                                <div class="col-sm-12">
                                    <div class="form-group row">
                                        <label for="requiredinput-host" class="col-sm-2 col-form-label">{$ADDONLANG.gcPage_redeem_vc_requiredinput_1}</label>
                                        <div class="col-sm-10">
                                            <input type="text" class="form-control" id="requiredinput-host" placeholder="hostname">
                                        </div>
                                    </div>
                                </div>
                            {elseif $data["data"]["properties"]["requiredinput"] == 2}
                                <input type="hidden" id="requiredinputtype" value="2"/>
                                <div class="col-sm-12">
                                    <div class="form-group row">
                                        <label for="requiredinput-fqdn" class="col-sm-2 col-form-label">{$ADDONLANG.gcPage_redeem_vc_requiredinput_2}</label>
                                        <div class="col-sm-10">
                                            <input type="text" class="form-control" id="requiredinput-fqdn" placeholder="domain.com">
                                        </div>
                                    </div>
                                </div>
                            {elseif $data["data"]["properties"]["requiredinput"] == 3}
                                <input type="hidden" id="requiredinputtype" value="3"/>
                                <div class="col-sm-12">
                                    <div class="form-group row">
                                        <label for="requiredinput-ip" class="col-sm-2 col-form-label">{$ADDONLANG.gcPage_redeem_vc_requiredinput_3}</label>
                                        <div class="col-sm-10">
                                            <input type="text" class="form-control" id="requiredinput-ip" placeholder="1.2.3.4">
                                        </div>
                                    </div>
                                </div>
                             {else}
								**Your new codes
                            {/if}

If you need the required input to show up for a particular voucher mapping then you can perform a IF condition such as 


{if $data["data"]["id"] == X}

{/if}

Where X is the voucher's ID. 

Once you have added the fields, you may want to add additional Javascript validation.

Part 2 - PHP Backend

Warning!

Do not allow user input without running some sort of validation of user's input. 


You will want to run some validation in the backend before it is inserted into your database. To do this, open the following file

modules/servers/giftcardprovision/include/processhookVC.php

This file is not encoded. There for you can make any changes you need for New Service redemption that require additional user input.

The codes are in the redemptionProcessHook function. 

You can refer to the WHMCS AddOrder API guide for additional information.

That's it. You new codes should be running for your new inputs.

Running codes after successful Renewal Redemption

If you run any custom code after a user successfully redeemed a voucher, simply open the following file.

modules/servers/giftcardprovision/include/processhookVC.php

then you can insert your own code in the redemptionRenewalHook function.

The $vars variable contains the following

$vars = array("uid"=>$_SESSION['uid'],"vcdata"=>$vcdata);

$vcdata are the voucher's properties which you can locate it in the mod_giftcard_voucher table in the database

$serviceid is the service id of the user chose to extend the renewal to.
