I'm using Magento 1.7. In creating new order via admin panel, how do you get the total quantity of items ordered?

  • what you mean by total quantity of items ordered ? Means no of items which is ordered in a order?

  • Yes, exactly. Because I want to add some fee based on the quantity of the items ordered in the order, prior to submission of the order.

If you have Order object then using getTotalItemCount() ,you can get no of items ordered in an order.

<?php $_order = $this->getOrder() ?>
<?php echo $_order->getTotalItemCount();?>
