I have used the following module to add a custom checkout pane to get some additional information from the user regarding the order.


I now need to apply a condition that if the order contain a product of specific product type then display this pane else hide it.

Can some one please guide me how can I do this.

I have found the following code from https://drupal.org/node/1807092 but I don't know how to modify it according my need. Looking for some help on how to modify & use this code.

<?php function commerce_conditional_panes_commerce_checkout_pane_info_alter(&$checkout_panes, $form, &$form_state) {
global $user;
foreach($checkout_panes as $pane_name => &$pane_data) {
    // load current order
    $order = commerce_cart_order_load($user->uid);
    // retrieve the value of controlling field
    $order_wrapper = entity_metadata_wrapper('commerce_order', $order);
    $control = $order->field_make['und']['0']['value'];
    // Perform switch to see what to do with each aircraft make
    switch ($control)
       case "value1":
       case "value2":
       case "value3":
       case "value4":
       case "value5":
       case "value6":
         // ...we only need to override one of them
         if($pane_name == 'commerce_fieldgroup_pane__conditional_pane' && $pane_data['enabled']) {
           // the pane is enabled by default, so we need to disable it
           $pane_data['enabled'] = 0;
       case "value6":
       case "value7":
       case "value8":

It's surely too late for your project... Anyway, you may use Commerce Rules Extra, it adds the exact features you need :

  • Rules conditions : Total product of type quantity comparison : Total of products of specified type and with a specified quantity
  • Rules actions : Change pane properties : Change visibility, page, weight of a pane

Once you installed it, in checkout settings , set your pane as disabled by default and create a new rule

  • event: Process checkout pane
  • conditions: Total product of type quantity comparison
    • Parameter: Order: [commerce_order]
    • Product Type: YOUR PRODUCT TYPE
    • Operator: >, Quantity: 0
  • action : Change pane properties
    • Parameter: Id of pane to change: YOUR PANE
    • Enabled: true
    • move to : checkout

Kojo's answer will no longer work as the 'Commerce Rules Extra' no longer can be used to hide panes.
