This module is for situations where you want to create a new element in your header/trailer (ie an extra side panel box, footer box, or central-panel box) but where the standard "types" of boxes/elements in the VPCart layout manager don't do what you need.

You would use this module to execute/show a custom-built "element" in your header/trailer without having to manually customise the way that the header/trailer processing works and without having to customise the layout manager's admin functions, so that you can place/create a given element using the standard VPCart layout manager, assign that element a sequence number like a normal element would, and then have your custom-created function called automatically for you at the right place.

For example, you might want to create a customer menu box on your side panel; you've got the asp/html code that can physically output the box, but you need the header/trailer layout processing to call it at the right point.

The standard VPCart layout manager will allow you to add things like freetext blocks, but it won't allow you to call a given asp function which might have more complex logic in it or which you want to display session/variable values in. This module will let you create an "element" with a given function name via the layout manager, and then you simply create the corresponding function in the byz_epe_fun_inc.asp file, the header/trailer will then call that function automatically for you at the right place.


Technical/Developer Information:
You'd create a function that displays what you want in a dedicated "extra panel elements" file (provided), and then you create a new box in Layout Manager (via the Add Box button) and enter the name of the function (with byzepe at the front) in the "Display Text" field.

That's it; job done! You can then enable/resquence the element via the layout manager.

You don't need to change your header/trailer files, or customise how the layout manager works/processes etc.

Comes with detailed installation notes, and detailed usage notes and example panel element functions.
