Get all price types enumum and configuration

PriceTypeConfiguration.PriceTypeDefinitions returns all price types, including predefined price types and price types defined in the configuration.

namespace CodeSamples.Mediachase.Commerce.Pricing
      {
        public class PriceTypeConfigurationSample
          {
            #region GetPriceTypeFromEnumAndConfiguration
            public IDictionary<CustomerPricing.PriceType, PriceTypeDefinition> GetAllPriceTypeDefinitions()
              {
                 // Get all price types - included predefined and price types from configuration file.
                 var priceTypeDefinitions = PriceTypeConfiguration.Instance.PriceTypeDefinitions;
                 return priceTypeDefinitions;
              }
            #endregion
          }
      }

Add your own customer price group

Customer Price Group is a predefined price type that should be matched with a specific sale code. Options available to marketers are predefined as: Customer, Partner, and Distributor.

As a developer, you can add items to that list, to make your own customer price group available in the drop-down.

Populate the list by adding the code in the example below, and call that from your initialization module.

private void AddVIPCustomerPriceGroup()
      {
        var metaFieldType = DataContext.Current.MetaModel.RegisteredTypes["ContactGroup"];
        var metaEnumItems = MetaEnum.GetItems(metaFieldType);
        var hasVIPGroup = metaEnumItems.Any(item => string.Equals(item.Name, "VIP", StringComparison.InvariantCultureIgnoreCase));
        if (!hasVIPGroup)
          {
            var lastIndex = metaEnumItems.Count();
            MetaEnum.AddItem(metaFieldType, "VIP", ++lastIndex);
          }
      }
