Quote Header Access Functions

Once the getQuote function has been called, data in the quote can be accessed and displayed using the QuoteBean API functions. Quote Header information is identified by Transact as the cart form parameters (fields) whose names begin with "HEADER_".

The functions that provide access to quote header data have names beginning with "getQuote" and return a String. Examples are getQuoteName, getQuoteID, and getQuoteAccountID. For the quote name, you must use the form parameter name "QUOTE_NAME". A code-level example of this technique is as follows:

<td><font face="VERDANA" size= -2>
<b>Quote Name:</b>
<td><font face="VERDANA" size= -2>
<input type="text" name="QUOTE_NAME" value="<%= bean.getQuoteName() %>">

Certain fields in the header are not updatable, because they should not be changed. These fields are as follows: account, date created, date modified, user_id.
