I'm extending the catalog_product_option_type_value database. I created my own table, my_catalog_product_option_type_value and it has a reference to the option_type_id. I have that working, and my class working but I added a table column to the custom options grid and I can't figure out how to get my custom field value.

enter image description here

When I click the 'Save and Continue Button', I want to be able to get the ID of the newly created or existing option_type_id and then use that id and 'My Value' to insert or update a record into my my_catalog_product_option_type_value table. I created an observer that picks up the catalog_product_prepare_save event. That is working but it only returns a product and it's options. I can't get my value. I found this code in the ProductController class:

if (isset($productData['options']) && !$product->getOptionsReadonly()) {

So, I though i'd be able to do something like


but that doesn't work because the post data is [options][id][values][id][my_value]. I don't know how i'd get the id of these options. So, I'm a little stuck and hoping someone can point me in the right direction

Looks like you will have to do some array itterations and key checking to pull your values.

Try this in your observer.

$options = $observer->getEvent()->getProduct()->getOptions();
if (is_array($options)) {
  foreach ($options as $key => $option) {
      if (is_array($option)  && array_key_exists('values',$option)) {   
          foreach ($option['values'] as $value) {
              if (is_array($value) && array_key_exists('YOUR FIELD NAME',$value)) {
                   $result = $value['YOUR FIELD NAME'];
                   // do something with the $result


Hope that helps.


In the catalog_product_prepare_save observer, you should use the code

$options = $observer->getEvent()->getProduct()->getProductOptions();

instead of

$options = $observer->getEvent()->getProduct()->getOptions();

& refer the remaining part in ProxiBlue's answer!

I tested it work with magento version.
