A12–Building App using Angular and ASP.NET Core 2.1–Shopping Cart

This post is a part of a series of posts that I am writing as I am building an app using Angular and ASP.NET Core 2.1. Links to previous posts –> A1, A2, A3, A4, A5, A6, A7, A8, A9, A10, A11 Github Repo

In the previous post, I started created Shopping Cart page where you could view products and remove products from Shopping Cart. Today, I want to fix a couple of things about Shopping Cart. If you added multiple products then we want to do following things.

1. Show Product along with quantity

2. Change Product quantity

3. Show Order Total

4. Update Order Total when product is deleted.

5. Do not show same product multiple times if product is ordered multiple times.

Below is the UI for new checkout experience.


If I remove product then order total is updated.


I created a complete different class for displaying products on Shopping Cart Page. I am calling it ShoppingCartProduct. In the ShoppingCartController, I am getting all products and then doing a group by into ShoppingCartProduct.

using A100.Models;
using Microsoft.AspNetCore.Mvc;
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;

namespace A100.Controllers
    public class ShoppingCartController : Controller
        private static List<Product> shoppingCartProducts = new List<Product>() {
            new Product { Id = 1, Title = "XYZ1",Description = "Description XYZ 1 ", Price = 101,ImageUrl = "ImageUrl_XYZ1" },
            new Product { Id = 1, Title = "XYZ1",Description = "Description XYZ 1 ", Price = 101,ImageUrl = "ImageUrl_XYZ1" },
            new Product { Id = 1, Title = "XYZ1",Description = "Description XYZ 1 ", Price = 101,ImageUrl = "ImageUrl_XYZ1" },
            new Product { Id = 2, Title = "XYZ2",Description = "Description XYZ 2 ", Price = 200,ImageUrl = "ImageUrl_XYZ2" }
        public IEnumerable<ShoppingCartProduct> Products()
            var s = from y in shoppingCartProducts
                    group y by y.Id into grouping
                    let p = grouping.First()
                    select new ShoppingCartProduct { Id = grouping.Key,
                        Title = p.Title,
                        Quantity = grouping.Count(),
                        Price = p.Price,
                        Description = p.Description,
                        ImageUrl = p.ImageUrl,
                        TotalPrice = p.Price * grouping.Count() };
            return s.ToList();

        public ActionResult Add(int id)
            return new JsonResult("product added to cart");
        public ActionResult Delete(int id)
            return new JsonResult("product removed from cart");

I had to update relevant parts shopping-cart.component.ts as well.

That’s all I have for today. Please check source code on Github and ask questions if you have any.
