I used below code to add a product pragmatically to a Wishlist, and is working successfully-

  $customer = Mage::getModel('customer/customer');
  $wishlist = Mage::getModel('wishlist/wishlist');
  $product = Mage::getModel('catalog/product');

  $customer_id = 1;
  $product_id = 1;

My Question is that if I am having a Product with a Custom Option, then how could i add that selected option to a wishlist.

Completely, I need a Code which can add Product to a Wishlist with a selected custom option.

Please help me on this.

  • I got the solution for above please go through the below Code:<br><br><br> $wishlist=Mage::helper('wishlist')->getWishlist();<br> $storeId = Mage::app()->getStore()->getId();<br> $model = Mage::getModel('catalog/product');<br> $_product = $model->load($productId);<br> $params = array('product' => $productId,<br> 'qty' => 1,<br> 'store_id' => $storeId,<br> 'options' => array('optionId'=>'optionValue')<br> );<br> $request = new Varien_Object();<br> $request->setData($params);<br> $result = $wishlist->addNewItem($_product, $request);<br> Commented Aug 11, 2014 at 8:52

I got the solution for above please go through the below Code:

$storeId = Mage::app()->getStore()->getId();
$model = Mage::getModel('catalog/product');
$_product = $model->load($productId);
$params = array('product' => $productId,
        'qty' => 1,
        'store_id' => $storeId,
        'options' => array('optionId'=>'optionValue')
$request = new Varien_Object();
$result = $wishlist->addNewItem($_product, $request);

    This would only work for me if the options param was renamed super_attribute.

Go to file: app/design/frontend/your_package/your_template/catalog/product/view/addto.phtml and change this line:

<li><a href="<?php echo $_wishlistSubmitUrl ?>" onclick="productAddToCartForm.submitLight(this, this.href); return false;" class="link-wishlist"><?php echo $this->__('Add to Wishlist') ?></a></li>


<li><a href="<?php echo $_wishlistSubmitUrl ?>" onclick="productAddToCartForm.submit(this, this.href); return false;" class="link-wishlist"><?php echo $this->__('Add to Wishlist') ?></a></li>

I have changed productAddToCartForm.submitLight to productAddToCartForm.submit

I then made a hidden field to display the error:

<div class="validation-advice hidden" id="advice-required-entry-size-select">Please select product size.</div>

I added this in file: app/design/frontend/your_package/your_template/catalog/product/view/type/options/configurable.phtml Add it wherever you want to display the error.

and in the same configurable.phtml file i added this small script:

   if($('.size-select').val() == ''){

where .size-select is a class to my size options.
