Display Product Variant Metafields

- 1 answer

I need to display metafields based on the variants selected on the product page. I want them to change as the variants are clicked. I may need some jquery help but I am not that sure how to apply with liquid. Below is my code, any help is greatly appreciated!

{% for variant in product.variants %}
<div id="tab{{ forloop.index0 }}" class="zr-tabs-panel {% if forloop.first == true %}js-active{% endif %}">
  <div class="table-responsive>">
    <table class="table table-striped">
        {% for field in current_variant.metafields.var_meta %}
          <td>{{ field | first }}</td>
          <td>{{ field | last }}</td>
        {% endfor %}
{% endfor %}


The short answer is that you will need to (a): Expose your meta fields to your site's javascript somehow, then (b): Update your variant-changing code to also update the section based on your meta fields.

In many themes, the variant-changing code is contained in a function named selectCallback (though this isn't the case in all themes - if you have trouble finding this code, you can try reaching out to your theme's developer for theme-specific advice).

Whenever you're using Liquid code to put values into Javascript code, I strongly recommend using the json filter - Liquid's magic filter that ensures your output will always be Javascript-legal. (Quotation marks and line breaks will be properly escaped, empty values will be printed as null, etc)
