I would like to add a custom block next to each item displayed in the shopping cart, which has access to the properties of the specific product it has access to.
Since, this is a part of a plugin, I need to do so without hardcoding anything into core files, i.e. only through the use of
layout.xml/event handlers. Any other way which does not involve modifying Magento files.
For example: adding a button which displays itself next to each item in the shopping cart, and performs an action on the SKU of the particular product it is displayed next to.
I will post a screenshot of what I mean shortly.
Just to be clear I do not want to override the existing block, I want to "add" to it
