Hello,

I need to be able to retrieve the name of the background image outside of the editor. Is there any way to retrieve a background image name on change via Javascript? Also, is it possible to have a background image from the background gallery be used only for display purposes within the editor and not be included in the print output?

Use case: Our client is a print shop offering different colored envelopes, and we need to pass the envelope color selection along with the product to the cart. Obviously, we don't need to print the color of the envelope - we would just like the user to see it.

Thanks!
Shane

You can use "getallItems" method, it returns the array of items, you can choose the element and get its name.

"onChange" event will be available in the later versions of Customer's Canvas.

Yes, it's possible, to reach that, you need to add the marker <VNP> to the name of the layer with the image which you want to display in the editor but don't want to print. The article about the markers:
https://customerscanvas....cc/supported-markers.htm

For your use case, you can set the product theme options(color), here is the article about it:
https://customerscanvas....cs/cc/product-themes.htm
And the examples:
https://customerscanvas....-page/envelopes/envelope
https://customerscanvas....ge/business-cards/simple
The color theme can be passed to the cart and the order info.

Regards,
Sergey
