i have many documents as article page type in my cms tree. i want convert all documents to e-product. i checked "Page type represents a product type" in E-commerce menu of page type but just if i create new page type, that is a e-product. And the rest of the document is not changed.

How to do it???

I believe you have to set that at the Page Type level and not just the document you already have created. If you want new Articles to be products, then go to Page Types>Articles>E-Commerce and check out the 2 options there.

Set the properties, map from original custom fields, field names on right are what your custom document type fields are :

newProduct.SKUName = doc.DocumentName;
                        newProduct.SKUPrice = ValidationHelper.GetDouble(doc.GetValue("Price"), 5000);
                        newProduct.SKUDescription = ValidationHelper.GetString(doc.GetValue("Description"), string.Empty);
                        newProduct.SKUProductType = SKUProductTypeEnum.EProduct;
                        newProduct.SKUAvailableItems = 2000;
                        newProduct.SKUValidity = ValidityEnum.Days;
                        newProduct.SKUValidFor = 2;
                        newProduct. ??? (e-product file)
                        newProduct.SetValue("SKUShortDescription", ValidationHelper.GetString(doc.GetValue("Description"), string.Empty));

there is no way?

i use from this code :

Guid attGuid = ValidationHelper.GetGuid(doc.GetValue("DocFile"), Guid.Empty);
                        if (attGuid != Guid.Empty)
                            AttachmentInfo ai = DocumentHelper.GetAttachment(attGuid, _tree, SiteContext.CurrentSiteName);

                            MetaFileInfo mfi = new MetaFileInfo();
                            mfi.MetaFileObjectID = 1;
                            mfi.MetaFileObjectType = "ecommerce.sku";
                            mfi.MetaFileGroupName = "E-product";
                            mfi.MetaFileName = ai.AttachmentName;
                            mfi.MetaFileExtension = ai.AttachmentExtension;
                            mfi.MetaFileSize = ai.AttachmentSize;
                            mfi.MetaFileMimeType = ai.AttachmentMimeType;
                            mfi.MetaFileGUID = ai.AttachmentGUID;
                            mfi.MetaFileLastModified = ai.AttachmentLastModified;
                            mfi.MetaFileSiteID = ai.AttachmentSiteID;


                            SKUFileInfo sfi = new SKUFileInfo();
                            sfi.FileGUID = Guid.NewGuid();
                            sfi.FileSKUID = newProduct.SKUID;
                            sfi.FilePath = "~/getmetafile/" + ai.AttachmentGUID + "/" + ai.AttachmentName.Substring(0, ai.AttachmentName.IndexOf(".", System.StringComparison.Ordinal)) + ".aspx";
                            sfi.FileType = "MetaFile";
                            sfi.FileLastModified = DateTime.Now;
                            sfi.FileName = ai.AttachmentName;
                            sfi.FileMetaFileGUID = mfi.MetaFileGUID;

Hi, Hadi. Thanks for your nice sharing. But I wonder how to deal with those code? I wonder have you ever worked it out? Do I need another 3rd party manual toolkit for help? When it comes to PDF conversion process, I have another question, I wonder have you ever tried to convert pdf to other image files before? As for myself, I am testing the related PDF to image converting programs these days. Do you have experience about it? Any suggestion will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Best regards,
