I am updating multiple cart items at a glance. And i have updated cart item id's with me. Now i want to get CART item data by its id.

Can you plese help me on this.


This should be done with the Mage_Sales_Model_Quote_Item class. If you're updating several items it might be better to use it's collection tho.

$the_item_ids = array(2,5,6,8);

$collection = Mage::getModel('sales/quote_item')->getCollection()
   ->addFieldToFilter('item_id', array('in' => $the_item_ids));

foreach($collection as $item)
  • Thanks. Can i do like this: $cartItem = Mage::getSingleton('checkout/cart')->getQuote()->getItemById($item['itemId']);

  • @SelectSmile I'm not sure if that method exists but if so, yes

    AFAIK getItemById() is defined in Varien_Data_Collection and should be available in all collections.

we can load quote item object by item_id directly.

$itemObject = Mage::getModel('sales/quote_item')->load($itemId);

This is working fine for me.


Use this because of _assignOptions and _assignProducts in Mage_Sales_Model_Resource_Quote_Item_Collection:

$collection = Mage::getResourceModel('sales/quote_item_collection')
     ->setQuote($quote) // this is the model not an id.
     ->addFieldToFilter('item_id', array('in' => $quoteItemIds));

If no quote is set, it won't work.


To be straightforward this is what you need to load a quote(cart) item by its id

$_quote = Mage::getSingleton('checkout/session')->getQuote();
$cartItemId = (int) $this->getRequest()->getParam('item_id');
$_quoteItem = Mage::getModel('sales/quote_item')
