changing $product.price value

I have an issue - pulling my hair out over

1.3.5sp4 cart version.

I am in the product_details.tpl - the array $product is obviously set.

specifically the $product.price has a value of course.

I want to change that on the fly to something if a condition is met - but I want to update the array directly so that the rest of the general coding knows that value.

Essentially I want to do {$product.price = ‘100.00’}

which I know is not possible - I tried smarty assign - that didnt work either.

$product[price] - tried variations of the array - nothing.



Solved the issue actually - thanks
