Im sure this is something simple, but I would really appreciate some help with it. How to check by php if the node is an ubercart product? Empty sku field might work but how can it be accessed ?

  • What context do you need to know this in? hook_node_view() or similar?

  • It meant to be a rule for Page manager to customize layout only for nodes that are ubercart 3 products

  • Sorry, not really sure why I asked that; as long as you've got a $node object in the context it doesn't really matter

  • Cant tell if it is good idea but Iv made it with reverse rule and this code $var = ctools_context_keyword_substitute('%node:product', array(), $contexts); if (empty($var)) { // not product }

I think the most solid way to test would be to check that the node's type is one that the uc_product module considers to be a product node type. You can do that by using the uc_product_types() function:

$node_types = array_keys(uc_product_types());
if (in_array($node->type, $node_types)) {
  // The node is a product
  • It is greate idea, Thanks. but for some reason this error shows up on node page Notice: Undefined variable: node in eval() (line 2 of /sites/all/modules/ctools/plugins/access/php.inc(55) : eval()'d code). Notice: Trying to get property of non-object in eval() (line 2 of /sites/all/modules/ctools/plugins/access/php.inc(55) : eval()'d code).

Not really. The most solid way is to use the function Ubercart provides for just this purpose: uc_product_is_product().
